I was getting a little worried as Iwas scrowing down through the pictures. Those branches looping and circling all over were tormenting me. But as I got further down they were gone. Thank you so much for cutting those off. I feel much better now. That is a very nice piece of material you've collected. And turning into a very nice tree.

Those branches looping and circling were thread graftings, I agree that are ugly, but is a secure way to put a new branch where you want. You can read more about this tecnique here, click,click

“The object is not to make the tree look like a bonsai, but to make the bonsai look like a tree.” - John Naka



I don't know if some day this will be a bonsai, but, at least for to some little bird, it looks like a tree Very Happy Very Happy
