Root Over Rock Black Pine
« on: July 07, 2015, 02:04 PM »
This black pine has a nice history; much of which happened long before I met the bonsai.  We met in October of 2013.  First photo is pre-styling.

The bonsai was lightly restyled then, and branches were slated for removal in 2014 and 2015. 

This is a photo from Oct. 2014

This Spring (2015), a new planting position was chosen emphasizing the surface roots and raising the stone a little more.

This pine, reeking with potential, will keep you busy (and me interested) far into the future. And the rock is just crazy good!

Wowowowowow

That is definitely a winner on the way there.

I have to agree on that rock.  What a beauty.

I will follow this thread and pull tips for my JBP

Great work Owen

This is super, and should pull a lurker or two out of the water. ;D

Is that where they (I) live?  Or is it lunker?
