I've posted this one elsewhere on the internet, but thought folks here who hadn't seen it elsewhere might enjoy it. A 29" cryptomeria I started about two years ago from 8' nursery stock, and I gave it away this summer as a 25th wedding anniverary gift to my neighbors, the man having always admired it. The first photo is the tree as it was when I gave it to them, and the second photo is today after they requested I come by and trim it (which I offered to do, neither one really interested in learning the craft). The foliage is starting to take on a bit better definition. The deadwood still needs work, and I may offer to do that over time, although they seem very happy with it as it is.
