hornbeam: demo tree in Croatia 2007

This was my demonstration tree at the first South East European Bonsai Symposium in Croatia. At the time when I did the demonstration many spectators must have thought that I am nuts 'ruining' such a nice tree. Well, all I wanted to do is showing how a deciduous tree is developed. Only 20 months later it looks decent, I suppose. The last two images are virtuals, of course. But if I wanted to repot the tree this spring I could achieve the look immediataly. This hornbeam will still get much better within the next years, I am sure.
