mugo pine #16

Pinus mugo, mugo pine, 55 cm hihg, 75 cm long, way over 100 years old, collected by Horst Heinzlreiter in 1998, styled by WP from fall 2006, rock by Dietmar Popp.

Then I played with the new rocks by Dietmar Popp. The good thing is that one can build a landscape with modules. If you don't like them you can tear the whole thing down within minutes and build another one. At the moment this looks a bit artificial. But the rocks will be full of moss, algae and lichen and weeds within a couple of years. Anyway, this is much better than the old pot.
