Beautiful, love that combination. Twin Trunk Mt. Hemlock. Sarah Rayner pot.
Gorgeous tree, really captures the nature of the tree as it grows on the Mountain sides of Mt Rainier. Been there and seen them there, and this is a good representation of those trees.

Here's my tree, Conocarpus erectus - Buttonwood:

Well, five years after the fact, I discover this thread you started! Great idea!

I'm also surprised to see you signing on as "Dorothy," when I've been calling you - obviously in error, but an error you've graciously tolerated - "Darlene" all this time. Do you go by both, or have I been embarrassing myself for years?

Beautiful, beautiful buttonwood, BTW!

As per the rules, I'll post one, and one that I know impressed you recently - enjoy the Acacia "Aroma" tree again!

Hi Grouper, are you confusing cascade with @Cadillactaste? Or maybe I'm confused.

Crape myrtle that I chopped last year. The shoot that became the new leader grew out of the back of the tree, which creates a big wound right in the front of the tree. Hopefully in time it will heal over.

Nice photo. Time for a nice Bonsai pot for that ginkgo.

Per the “rules”, the photo can be of the same tree, but needs to be a different photo. Seeing some others posting summer reruns lately, weak sauce lack of effort...here is a new photo of a familiar J. Maple in a Koyo pot.

Thank you...Honestly I was considering upsizing for more ramification. (Scott Lee's suggestion...to make it even better.) Might shoot you a photo of it out of leaf this winter. See your opinion then.

Well ... I guess it was late in life, late at night, and late into a bit of Don Papa nightcap when what remained of my functioning neurons decided to post such a blunder ... my most humble apologies, Darleen.

Beautiful ginkgo, BTW! Here's mine:

A lovely image. Though the pot should be round and smaller and a bit deeper IMO. The leaves are stunning.
