Carving American Hornbeam

At Hidden Gardens, south of Chicago I carved this huge stump of collected American hornbeam, Carpinus carolineana. The nebari is extremely good. The stump would bother most folks. This has a future as Fairy Tale Bonsai. I really thnink it has a great future.  The virtual in the end shows what sort of crown I envision. There are plenty more of similar trees available at Hidden Gardens.
