I've been working on this since October 2008.  It is one of my very first trees. Full story of this larch can be seen here.  http://bonsaistudygroup.com/deciduous-bonsai-discussion/my-slightly-awkward-larch/

Here in the Northeast, this is the time of year our tropicals look best. With their shiny new, smaller leaves (as a result of defoliation), they're just crying out for a Fall exhibition before they hard inside for the winter.

Here's the tree a couple of days ago and a montage of its development since I started it.
