new hornbeam #2

This oriental hornbeam, Carpinus orientalis, is a monster. Drago and I could almost not carry it. Well, I understand that still a lot of original soil is in the rootball. When this is wet it is very heavy. Eventually this will be a large, but still reasonably sized bonsai. I look forward to tame the monster in the next ten years.

Are these hornbeams from Croatia? They're really nice.

10 years sounds like such a long time yet it goes by so fast.
