Procumbens Juniper …Some Changes

“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense” -Buddha

Got completely fed up with this one how it was, so decided I would make inroads into changing it from a cascade to an informal upright. Why? Well, just because I fancied a change really, and didn’t like where it had been going.

The pot is now completely wrong but will have to do until later in Spring. It was repotted last year and has done well since that time. I have a pot in mind but will try several before making mind up fully.

Not finished, far from it really; but my fingers and thumbs always react badly to the prickling. I should wear gloves really!

Further defining and an overall reduction in length of existing branches is probably on the cards. As a tip to anyone working with Bonsai and in particular restyling, leave it alone for a while and walk away. Even a day or two. Come back to it after a certain stage; the tree will be better for it. Been on this now off and on for quite a few hours.

As it was originally, then prior to work this week.

      Thanks Don; really appreciate your time in leaving a reply 🙂 I suppose like anything Bonsai based there comes a time when something simply does not work any longer and hence I decided on the change. Need to sort out a pot change though; this current one certainly doesn’t work any longer. Oh well, Swindon show on the 19th Feb fingers crossed. I need a few now.
