A new Scottie

Scratch Bonsai

Bought this Scots Pine from a fellow club member back in spring and let it acclimatise in my garden for the past few months.  Had a chance to give it a first styling/wiring with the help of Phil, a much more experienced bonsai practitioner.  To be fair he did most of the work 🙂

I’m excited about this piece of material.  Loved it as soon as I saw it and immediately had a literati tree of some kind in mind.  It’ll take a while for some backbudding to occur and more will be removed in further stages.  Not sure which direction it’ll go in just yet.  I’ll ponder it for a while.
