It really is filling in nicely, Herman!

Is that a water tower in the background?

Hi Mr. Kirby,

thank you:)

I have a question I wanted to ask you

the branch in this photo circled in red bothers me, I can't explain it; maybe it is the angle it comes out of the trunk or the straightness of it. Do you seen anything that could be done better, something that bothers you about that branch or any part  of the rest of the tree?

also how would I go about correcting the angle it comes out of the trunk? if I bend it there and the branch starts tearing from the trunk would it be a problem, I don't like tearing branches to correct angles.

I will post some better pictures later on, I got my better half to get out her uber camera

thanks for the reply

Best regards
Herman
