Well, last weekend I blew out my knee (again). I’ve been relegated to the couch all week; can’t walk or drive until after my surgery next Monday.

Anyway, in my couch-ridden state I decided to purchase a new shohin to cheer myself up. I scrolled and scrolled and scrolled (what else do I have to do?) and eventually landed on this small Escambron from Wigerts:

I also purchased this Bunzan container for it. I think the rough bark of the escambron will be complemented nicely by the crackle glaze. And I’ve been wanting a yellow container in my tropical collection :)

Should arrive next week, post op day 2. Something to look forward to. I will continue to post updates as the tree arrives and as I do some work on it!

Feel free to comment with any thoughts or critiques, I am not going anywhere anytime soon 😂

Best of luck with the surgery. I love Wigert's.

Here’s a rough virt, just for fun. Maybe another front will present itself when I actually have the tree.

Update: surgery was a success and the tree is supposed to arrive today!

Been doing a bit more research on the species. Here’s a photo of what the flowers are supposed to look like. Can’t wait to see some of these in the yellow container some day!

Lots of work to do in the canopy/branching. But a good base to build on. I like the crackle glaze with the bark, which I think will continue to age and fissure with growth and time. Fingers crossed for flowers!
