Thanks...I promise to bring trees next year; though you weren't lacking any in talent there!

That container is a slab-built one by Byron Myrick.  Years ago I commissioned it after an antique Cantonese pot from the book Classic Bonsai of Japan (tree #3).  He made three pots; one cracked in the kiln, and this one had the most approximate glaze.  I could wish for more green and less gold through the center panel, but he does good work and is always improving.

Here's the hawthorn dressed and ready for a trip to NY...

Dam.

  Now that one looks fantastic.

Same muscle trunk as another thread yes?

It is looking very good now. I love the visual of the trunks through the canopy.

This is one of my favorite trees ever! ;D

Keeps the birdies away...well actually the screen does, tees just keep the screen up off the soil a bit.

  Hear! Hear! A lot of Hydrilla Gorillas live in golf course ponds! On my way to a place tomorrow where the Smallmouth get 7 pounds.

I did a detailed progression over at Bnut, don't have the photos with me to do another one at the moment.

Leaf size...they've always been pretty small, but decent ramification and 100% full sun helps.

Long time lurker - I plan to create a thread for this shohin common juniper but figured I'd share the results of its first styling.
Thanks!
