spruce on it's way

This is a very interesting European spruce (Norway spruce), Picea abies. It was collected in Switzerland in 1985. The onwern did not do much to it other than keep it healthy. I acquired it in 2005. The first images are all from summer 2005. I then gave it three yers to show me that it wants to live and is happy. Now I cut it back more and in summer I will wire it finally. This is way over 100 years old, closer to 200.
