I'm interested in seeing the pot properly. Is it a very shallow pot on a matching stand or is that just the top of a deeper pot?

Me too. Are you planning on cutting back the rest of the tree like you did the first branch?

thanks for the kind comments viewers.

I like the short lower branch too.

hello there.
started work on top.
ready for a shape change.  
Removed some lower branches.
filed them out and grew the foliage to a more rounder
and taller look.

I dont think that is quite what Russel had in mind....hihihihihii Wink 

No seriously, Hi and welcome.  Would you like these wonderful bored people to comment and help you with your bonsai, turning it from an beautiful topary to an breathtaking bonsai,  or are you just showing us your wonderful artistic capabilities?

Love and light
ps.  I for one, love it.

Can you see the 3 branches coming from the same spot on the right here:

You need to remove one or you will get reverse taper there.
