I guess great minds think alike. I've since moved this tree into a regular pot, but I'm not happy with it and may replant it in this tile.

I like the tree, very expressive, like the landscaping. I think the tile is too big for the tree, it get a bit lost, the little stones don't do it for me. Maybe planted on one side it would work better, it is almost dead centre.
Thank you for sharing though.

You are right!
I too see the tile a bit big. I thought in break the tile, to shrink it and create some interesting effect, but the fear beat me. On the other hand I liked the sense that the base of the wind swept's tree be a tile blown by the wind ...
Will Improve the tree position later. What direction do you suggests to move the tree to exalt the wind swept's effect?

I really appreciate your observation like a great contribution.

Thank you!

The direction of the tree is to the right, so that is where it needs to have the most space. It will make the composition more dynamic imo.

I like your Ligustrum.
Jim, how do you over-winter your Podocarpus? And, do you over-winter it with the succulents?
Thanks...

It stays outside for most of the winter. Only when temperatures get to the LOW 20s (F) does it come in. Otherwise, I cover it with a sheet on days below 30 degrees. The succulents are only hens and chickens; I'm not sure they CAN be killed.

Hi German... Thanks for sharing.  One of the glories of functional gardening is the "ha-ha wall," and your construction suggests it to me.  Like Dan Barton's iterations of the "stile" gateway in bonsai tray scenes, it arguably thrusts the viewer in a landscape view where man's presence is felt as contributing but the builder is absent.  

I feel similarly when approaching  stones carefully stacked & balanced in a remote place.

A related IBC thread is linked HERE.

Hi Chis, that's exactly what I was looking for!

I should confess that this wall made of small bricks is a cheap and commercial aquarium item! however, i think that's work very well in this aplication.

I enjoyed that link and thanks for your right interpretation!

Regards,
Germán.
