''E'' juniper, now "Cabrettaïre"

Post  AlainK on Fri May 22, 2009 2:08 am

I bought this Chinese juniper in 2007, and put it in a pond basket.

But I really wondered what I could make of it : straight trunk, a root, first branch and second branch that made a capital 'E':



I finally decided that I should cut the first branch, and twist the trunk one way or another, but i had no precise idea:



But I went to my club tonight, and with the help of my friends, I came to this solution as a first styling that I put into practise when back home:

First, the lobster stage:



Then, wrapping it up:



Next, wiring it:



Now the answer, my friends, is blowing in the wind:



The other side, with a piper playing "cabrette", the kind of bagpipes they played down south, in Provence:



For:

"The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not mov'd with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils."

(Alfred Shakespeare) - I think... scratch

That's quite true: some people there have got an "eye for bonsai" that I still don't have.

I didn't have time to work on the tree with my friends, but as you can see the tree is very young so there still are many possibilities if they make othger suggestions. Next year, when it has developped a bit maybe.
