D...

This is the most important step in the progress of your work... like EVER. Taking the time and effort to get yourself a worthy peice of material, is a step a lot of people never get to, so they just give up. I'm so proud I could burst. Well done, I am very VERY excited to see the work you do on it over time.

BTW , this tree was collected in 1998 and potted in 2005. I think it's established.

Us incorigable ????? Never ! We're both certified dirty old men. Harry even made up certificates.

It's what keeps us young

BTW , my trees come from a source that has been messing with these things for decades and I'm lookin to him to help on this thing. First I need to get rid of useless branches like twigs with big grape bunches of foilage . Then I need to get rid of anything growing downward. Sounds pretty standard to me. I'll take some more pics after. I've been pulling old bark off the dead wood and it comes off in ling strips so that should help the look a lot.

I also think the pots way too bin and too shallow but thats a matter of taste partially and needs to wait till March or April. I'm also gonna hold off any wire until late Oct or Nov unless told otherwise. Theres a chance that I might get to go to a workshop with Roy Nagatoshi this fall and as you know he's an expert on callies. Whatever he tells me should be good sound advice.

Just come to GSBF this fall and we'll all have a big party... you can swing by and grab Harry, and it'll be one heck of a party. Not to mention it's just the coolest convention in the west. :D:D:D

Bring the tree... we'll all work on it. ;)

That sounds like heaven but......this fall belongs to my grandaughter. We're goin to Disneyland so all available funds are spoken for. Amnyway , I'm not sure GSBF is ready for Harry and me at the same time.

hahahaha... If GSBF can survive unscathed when I've decided to make it a habit... believe me... they'd survive you two. It's so big they wouldn't notice... it's like pebbles in a pond. :D

Though I may skip GSBF next year in favor of REBS... which is another very cool west coast show, and one I haven't been to. :)

At some point I would even like to hit Bay Island Bonsai's exhibition... and the display weekend is something of a must... I'd almost move to CA if it was as pretty as WA...lol nah... who am I kiddin'... too many people. lol
