I think these tree may be some of the best rafts that I've seen, especially the first one. I like the the overall shape as well as the knarly texture of the branches. How long has this tree been in training, Steven?

Thanks for sharing, admiring these trees was a nice way to start my day.

Superb bonsai Robert! They must be truly massive in real life. The scale of your design is amazingly deceptive. These bonsai look small but are really big, and yet at the same time, they look really massive but are actually small. It is really hard to explain the deceptive proportion of a good bonsai, especially with penjing like these. May be you should stand next to one in a picture so we can see how big it actually is.
Thanks for sharing with us. Happy New Year and Merry Christmas to you too!
