Chamaecyparis Pisifera Bulevard

This tree is with me almost from the start of my bonsai trip, so around five years and actually the first post on my blog was written about this tree. All this time I constantly worked on the tree and step by step it is slowly improving.

- five years of progress

Last year the tree was exhibited the first time at the European Bonsai Exhibition EBA-2012 in Ljubljana. And while I'm looking at the photos now, I think it was not ready for showing it at an exhibition. Especially not ready for an Exhibition at a EBA level. But Ok, they didn't throw tomatoes at me and it was a positive experience.

This spring I repoted the tree in the same pot with a new position and left it to grow and gain energy. At the evening of Mick Jaggers 70th birthday, with a good and long Rolling Stones playlist, I started the next styling, changed the wire and in the next days worked on some details.

At the moment I'm happy with the result and maybe if the tree develops nice in the future and gains the right maturity, someday in a couple of years, it will be truly ready for an exhibition. Maybe even before Micks 80th birthday.
