European Spruce #67

European spruce, Picea abies, collected in Austria in 2000. First image as of 2006, when I seriously styled the thing. This was a surprising change which the tree survived well.

Six years later !!! Walter took off all the wire and very few minor wire marks are visible. He then edited the crown which has started to have poodely branches. Then he wired everything on that shohin size tree. Well done, Walter! The pot is still a training pot, of course. It will go into a much flatter pot next August.
