yamadori lodgepole pine

This Pinus contorta, lodgepole pine was collected in late 2012, shortly after the establishment of the Munster Bonsai Club when I discovered the concept of yamadori.

It was collected from a hillside in East Clare and grown of for a year before a workshop with Ian Young and Phil Donnelly.

I was reluctant to allow any upper branches to be removed, which maybe should have happened sooner.

It was ready again for another workshop in summer 2015, after a repot to akadama that spring.

This winter (2016) I have repotted to a shallower pot.
