Busy with final presentation of competition tree

It has been a while since the last post.  I have been busy updating and adding to the Progression Series.

The Progression series is coming on well and I will be doing some more work on there in the next few weeks.  It is actually quite nice to have a look back and see how all the work and planning that goes in to each tree slowly moves them from twig in a pot towards presentable bonsai.  I would urge anyone coming in to bonsai as a novice to keep photos and logs of the development of their trees.  Nothing serves better as a motivational tool when you get stuck on some tree and start thinking it will never happen.

I have also been putting the final touches to my Wee Trees Competition tree.  It has now been planted in to a more suitable pot and dressed for the final photo session.  Photos have been submitted and it is now up to the forum members to vote at the end of April.  There is some stiff competition from other entries and it's looking like an exciting finish.
