Title: Shohin Literati-like Shimpaku
Post by: shimsuki on September 08, 2009, 05:01 PM
During our Japanese Festival club members had to stand guard of the trees on display. For three days, club members were at the Missouri Botanical Gardens from 8a.m. to 7p.m. guarding their trees. Some of us, like me, got bored. So I bought a $10 shimpaku and did a quick 15 min. project on my break. It is a Literati-like style. The 2nd picture shows the correct angle of the front. The first picture is a little off. Before I worked it, it was a ball of foliage.

First, let me say thanks for standing guard! Important duty. Regarding the literati juni, when I envision literati, I see less foliage and a more of a calligraphic silhouette.

Update:
Tree was repotted today into sara rayner pot. Sorry for the bad photo. I did not have the roots to put the tree in the center of the pot, maybe next time.
