Oh, said with a gasp, Those are certanly done with a masters hand! Thank you for the photos. I found a youngster recently with his acorn still attached. We have Monster old White Oaks here. I am waiting until the little tyke sheds his seed pod and with any luck I will start him on his journey to being a Bonsai. In the past I have seen White Oak used but leaf pruning must begin early. The little guys future left un touched would be to grow under the cabin and be pulled by a less caring cultivator LOL. Thought I would give it a try. :wink:

I love how the Japanese appreciate winter presentations more than spring and summer... just about any average tree can look great covered in leaves, but a dormant tree which has dropped it's leaves truly shows the artwork and craft that has developed the trunk and branches through the years... thanks for sharing
