Hold still my heart! This beauty is on the way to something very special. Serious prunus envy here.

There's a 100 year old one barely hanging on nearby. I've heard they're difficult or impossible to layer.

Excellent tree.  There's something special about Ume in bloom!

Brian, can you explain the thinking of the branch with the thick copper wire in the apex (on the right)?

Thanks, just bending it out of the way for blooming...

Very nice work, Brian.  I'm not sure I would have wanted to tackle it from where you started, but you sure brought out the bonsai in this specimen.
