Prunus ume #1

Prunus ume, imported from Japan as raw material, very big, very unusual. This looks just like the clumps of broadleaved trees that I work on all the time. Therefore I wanted to get this tree. Here the first steps. Michael helps me to tame this beast. Now I let it grow freely. In March 2015 it will be styled a bit more. This is in the Fairy Tale Style, not confoming to bonsai rules.
