Scots pine literati final design

Scots pine, Pinus sylvestris, 95 cm high, around 100 years old, collected in Sweden in 2001,
pot by Derek Aspinall

the first tow images are as of a couple of weeks ago. After that I cut out some growth on the living crown, took off the jin and peeled the bark at the end a litle to get more of the reddish bark.
Now the tree is ready for the Noleanders Trophy. This will be the first serious judged exhibit for the tree.

How many things does anyone recall with pleasure over years anymore... against all overwhelming novelty ! This is one of those dozen or so bits and pieces. It keeps getting me back to this blog, year after year.
