the leaning Austrian black pine

Some may remember this tree which I showed a few weeks ago. I took off some bark to get rid of the ugly knob and to enhance the spiral in the trunk. I wanted to see how the tree did after this serious operation. Today it looked very healthy and I decided to give it a go and do my last styling before I drive to the Gingko Award tomorrow all day with David. We will visit a couple of friends on the way back. You can expect a lot of pictures in the travelogues blog.

1) and 2) a few weeks ago

3) and 4) beginning of September - two equally valid fronts again. I have no clue how I do this every time :-)
