Mugo pine 57

I am very grateful to Piotr Czerniachowski for letting go of this pine. I will try very hard to do justice to this most outstanding material. Now the tree will rest until middle of August of next year. If it looks very happy then two things can happen: 1) pot the tree into a good bonsai pot in the right position. Or 2) wire and style the crown. Both together is certainly a nogo. We will see and I will report.
As so often with my trees this one has at least two excellent fronts. I will probably try to style the tree so it can be viewed from both sides equally.
