John Kirby:
I have tried to live with the foliage, which is very aggressive here in the warm midsouth, we are starting to graft. We will see how the whole grafting thing goes. Howard smith has decided to stick with natural foliage on his, his look good but man it is a lot of work. We will see what we will see. John

Howard is lucky to have a wife as talented and into bonsai as Sylvia, and although they have their own separate trees, I assume he gets a little help sometimes. :D  I have been lucky enough to see their backyard display area twice now, and you're not kidding that their trees look good.  Those were the first "real" bonsai I saw in person and they were quite inspiring.

Well....?

John Kirby:
I just finished driving 700 miles to get home. I will photo in the A.M.

John Kirby:
Here it is finally, should be a shohin (8") or Kifu (12") sized tree. Will let it grow freely until spring repot, then decide whether or not to use native or grafted foliage.
