Beautiful little tree. Love the front, side is also very appealing. Pot with the matching ornament is a great contribution. One minor observation - slightly higher display table/area?
I like it a lot.

Thanks all. As for the display stand, I used what was on hand. We got 5.3 inches of rain yesterday and I spent most of the day rescuing trees from drowning.

Very nice.

I tend to prefer the side view, it shows the trunk better.

Yeah, it works, too. I was aiming at showing the flowers this time, though.

Here you go . . .

Rodney Clemmons told me at the Carolina Bonsai Expo that I should have removed about half of the berries before I displayed it. I'm not sure I would have done it if he'd had a chance to tell me beforehand (but I know what he was aiming at).

What about making the trunk at the base a bit more visible? Would that be an improvement?

I didn't catch this one in the spring, so it was great to see the whole cycle of seasons at once! The blooms are wonderful, I like them as they are just plumping.
