On a cold and wet overcast afternoon i scoured the mixed woodland for the offspring of the Pines,i found only one.

It's in the bag.



Digging it up was less difficult than posting it's picture.

The weather was no less miserable when i snapped this picture.



I blame Al Gore for bestowing such a foul climate that day.

This is what i will be working with in the new year.



I may need some help with the complexities!

I see the magnificent trunk is about a score of years old and it's frond like lower limbs are about four.

The taproot almost did not exist and plenty of other roots were present,some looked suspect.

[EDIT]Enough with the antics, Red. I would like you to start contributing to the forum instead of just trolling, or your stay here will be short.

Can the spirit of Bonsai withstand such unpromising material,i wonder.

Of course it may not live,that may be a blessing in diguise.

The Bench probably assists with Vertigo as it's designed for a seated viewing but the chairs were all wet and it was too cold to crouch.

I will enjoy seeing what you do with it. I would have left it in the ground, but I want you to prove me wrong :) Do you have a design in mind? :)

It is shockingly bad,it would have been the decent thing to leave it in the ground.

Elegant simplicity does not easily spring to mind.

I toyed with the idea of elaborate bending and twisting.

Klytus, did you see Merlin or Sir Hector in the woods when you pulled the pine from the earth?
Who pulled that sword out of the stone anyway, Sir Lancelot or King Arthur?
Put the pine back so it may sing with its family some day.

Never,no one shall wield this Pine but me.

It was treacherous walking back with it and my bag full of sharp utensils,i felt sure that at any moment i would slip on some leaves or trip over a root and impale myself.

You should be credited with a real deed there Klytus. You are a great warrior the way you handled your utensils in the time of need. Just be glad ye woods was not full of Saxon warriors.

Oh my! I think I would prefer to see a dozen Saxon invaders than a woman golfer armed with a Callaway "Big Bertha" driver that just lost her brand new Titelist, esp in the buff. I never thought about collecting in the buff before. Maybe the Park Rangers might help me instead of arresting me.

Here is a Pine for you to model the whip into. Going shopping today for a woad at Macys.

Stay tuned for more of the KKRTMMS! (Unless someone else notices something decidedly solipsistic about this inter PLAY)

Is that yours? Klytus's tree is a far cry from that one. Do you have it listed in a thread? I'd enjoy to read discussion on it. Thanks
