This is the second year after first setting the branches on this Golden Japanese Cedar ( Cryptomeria japonica elegans aurea.) It started off quite small to grow in a half barrel, After a few years the barrel split and the tree began to lean, then stabilised as the roots took hold outside the barrel, but the top became so heavy that we thought it would fall. This friend of mine who is a Bonsai Artist, did an amazing job of cutting and wiring to produce what is now an established Cloud Tree.
I am not yet used to setting out these blogs. So the other photos are in the photo section.
We are still working on the pruning of several other trees and will add photos in future.. Something went wrong with transfer of pictures to the Computer, so had long time sorting them out, now have everything twice. I expect its my age, wish there had been computers when I was young.
