the larch with the ax found a new home

I passed the larch with the ax on to the next generation. Mauro Stemberger wanted this tree since years. Now he got it. For me it always was just too big. I could not carry it alone and even had serious problems carrying it with an assistant. I could not photograph it well and I certainly could never dream of exhibiting it. Mauro will change it, for sure, he will make an Italian bonsai of it. He promised to provide images of the changes.
A chapter is closed, but a couple of new ones are opened. I see these pictures with some sadness, but It is not that I just gave the tree away.
