I like to share some pictures (before and after) of my small Shimpaku Itogawa






This is the newest picture of it at the Northern Virginia Bonsai Society show 3 weeks ago

Thank you all for your nice comments, this tree still has a long way to go to be called a bonsai.

Hi Xuan,
nice tree. my student happened to have one itoigawa juniper that i think it came from the same place. he is planning to show it in January next year.
it looks so nice with new buds on the tips of all the branches. Thanks, Boon

Xuan, I like your Shimpaku and pot selection. Will it be at the PBA show? Where did you buy the juniper material?
Best, Todd

Thanks Boon, do you remember I brought this Shimpaku to repot it at Felix place last year?

Thanks Todd,
Yes it will be at tha PBA show (in the Chinese Pavillion) this year the admistration building is in renovation so the PBA show will be outdoor, only the jueried show will be in the International house.
I bought the tree from a friend and I don't know where he got it.

Beautiful little junipers, both of them. But I do have to say that I'm NOT a fan of those long, fake looking cork screw jins.

Russell,
it is farm raised. branches are wired to match the trunk. i think curve jins look better than straight jins on these trees. just preference,
thanks, Boon

I understand what you're saying and agree completely about the curved jin vs straight. My point is that since they are "farm raised" it seems like someone could do a better job of giving them some natural character and movement, that's all.

Wish I had one!

Nice tree Xuan.

...on the cork screw jins, I think one long and one short jins would be enough having too many with the same length and it will looks like a spaghetti piercing the tree...and won't look natural. I think it can be restyled after the farm purchase...but then again that depends on the owner.

Thanks Jun for your comment,
in the last picture you can see that I had eliminated some repeated spiral jins and shorten the remaining.
