I worked on the deadwood and especially on the huge stump then. At the moment it looks very man made, but I think this will look much better in a few months. When it si dry I will work with fire and then brush off the charcoal.
I am kind of happy with the tree now. While it lookes quite untidy (mind you NOT naturalistic!) it will look much better after wiring again. Since we repotted the tree in April, wiring can only take place in late summer if the tree looks very healthy then. It will finally look very good, I am sure. Progress wil be reported here. Stay tuned.
