Spring work has begun

Despite all meteorological evidence to the contrary (I'm getting six inches of snow right now), spring is here. We're running a few weeks behind, so I'm doing late winter styling of some material, and spring repotting of stuff in my heated greenhouse. Add to this student and client trees and I'm a pretty busy boy right now.

I shoehorned the first styling of this Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) in between client work. Can't wait to see it in a pot. I'll repot it into a large bonsai pot soon. Within a few years it'll get a pot that matches it better.
