The slab/moss combo reminds me of a sea turtle, I love this.

First thing i thought was a snail had run off with your tree.
I think they work well together. Did you make the slab?

Thanks for the comments and glad you liked it.

The pot is a slab /pot i bought from Tony Remington at the Welsh show. I decided to turn it up side down .

Empty spaces are very important in bonsai , fukinagashi style is a style with full of lightness , light trunk and foliage , without empty space, the small tree don't appear at the first look.
It's just an advice, it's not my tree.

I hadnt seen that before , it made me laugh out loud.
I must admit i didn't do my virt , a non bonsai friend sent it to me. I haven't the skill for that.

If that was the style i was going for then yes but i was even intending to intertwine the two tree branches together. I don't really follow bonsai styles . I just do what feels good .

Hello, ok, but i am not sure that is a prunus kojo no mai, flowers buds and bark seems chanemomeles japonica or psaudocydonia sinensis, look at the photographies, that is a prunus kojo no mai grafted on prunus mahaleb, , flowers buds are not rounded but sharp and bark is more clear, almost red.

It looks like my prunus kojo no mai which I've had for thirteen years. They're common garden centre plants here in the UK, popular for their compact size and reliable flowering. However, I have noticed in the last few years that what is sold as kojo no mai is a lot more angular and has a lighter, pinker bark than they used to.

Mine looks like all the other kojos i have seen , maybe yours isn't what you think it is. Its not a chanemomeles japonica or psaudocydonia sinensis as i get cherries on it.
