It's good to have you back in action!
A lovely tree- the new angle is surpisingly effective.

I agree with Ross, I would have tried to make this tree more flat, windswept.. much more elegant now.

Several months ago you made a comment along the photo of this pine "Most such Japanese white pines die in Germany sooner or later.The other reason is that they need iron and other rare minerals which are not readily available in normal fee. I do extra feeding with iron and super-nutrients. Thus the foliage becomes very green after having been yellowish before. We'll see - I will report."
On the new photo the tree looks more green; is it a feeling due to the photo or the reality? I have several white pines (in France Paris)and I am struggling to have them, not happy but at least surviving (for 11 and 7 years not too bad). They are not blue green as when they arrived from Japan but more yellow. I am afraid to add too much chemicals but I like the idea of the iron Fe-EDDHA do you ever try it?

The green color is reality. It has two reasons: one is feeding with iron and extra rare minerals, the other is the fact that the first photograph was taken in winter when the tree had the typical slghtly yellow winter color. I treat Japanese white pines with extra chemicals, especially iron and magnesium and they are very happy.
