I find the twists in the scots pine a bit strange, but it gives a nice overall impression.

The white pine looks very nice, what looks like scars from wiring on the base should disappear in time. I like it a lot.

Well done raimification on both trees, good work, well presented!


I like the twists, they go well with the semi-cascade.

I like the Scots pine.

The wire marks on the trunk of the White Pine are likely from embedded wire used to thicken the trunk. They will never fully disappear. BTW, the white pine trunk appears to be Japanese Black Pine trunk with white pine foliage grafted. Is there a graft union where is starts to curve down? Doesn't look too bad. Although embedded wire and a graft union are two strikes against it.

I too like the twists and turns, and it will only get better with time.

I very much liked the artistic way you have pulled the growth of the Scots Pine in on itself. Very nicely done and a good lesson for those having material of this nature and wondering what to do with it---like me.

Congratulations.

Hi Simon. Good to see your looking after my little "scottie". The first photo is just as i aquired it in 1999,at a bonsai boot sale {trunk}. It was one of my first trees and cost £5.00. Looking at it know,if i saw it on a sales bench ,i wouldnt give it a second glance.Back then it was the dogs danglies.
