Scots pine #24

Scots pine, collected in France in 1991, pot by William Vlaanderen. This was the fist styling. The wire will stay on for three years probably. Then it will be wired again. Sctos pines have to be wired often to keep the shape finally.

Trident maple #8

Trident maple, Acer burgerianum, pot Japan. See how long I let it grow to develop the crown. Thsi tree has two fronts as so many of my bonsai. In Japan definitely the immaculate one would be favored. in Eruope more people would toake the one with the big hole becasue they think it is more interesting than the 'boring' traditional side.
