Prunus #18

Wild plum, Prunus cerasifera, collected in Croatia in 2012 (!!!). pot by Walter Venne. Many people think that one finds a finished bonsai in the wilderness an plants it into a pot - and here we are with a naturalistic piece of art. Well, it isn't like this in real life. But once in a lifetime it happens. This tree was formed by cows. They did a great job, but I still feel the need to edit their wor. In a couple of years there will not be any really ugly guy wires and the tree will have hundreds of tiny white flowers in March. This shold be a killer tree for Noelanders Trophy eventually if I manage to ahve it flower in January. Just put it into a warm greenhouse in December. Or so I dream.
