Walter-

This hawthorn is terrible. It is not in vogue with sumo proportions, it appears to have reverse taper in at least two places and that low branch is just too phallic for those of us that are insecure in our appreciation of bonsai.

Spring is just around the corner here - the turkey vultures have arrived. I assume the bonsai vultures will follow.

See you soon.

Good that I offer this hawthorn for sale of trade. Yes, it's ugly. But wait for ten days. It will be full of red flowers all over the place and it will be very nice.
