Mugo pine #8

Mugo pine, Pinus mugo. This one has come a long way from collection in 2002. It comes from the Dolomites in Italy. I found and collected it myself.
Only now, ten years later can I see the light at the end of the tunnel. It was always obvious that the lower trunk and the deadwood are outstanding. But the challenge was to get the crown fitting to this. It is still too high. The pot will have to be changed - see last image which is a virtual. In April of 2013 it probably will happen.
