I bought this Rocky Mountain Juniper from Todd Schlafer a few weeks back. I picked it up while here in Chicago for the Midwest bonsai show.
These are the images that Todd sent me.
I was pretty excited to see the tree but did not realize just how big it was. Here is Todd carrying the tree to my car.
Here is the tree sitting in my hotel room just as I started to pull the fakey bark off.
Here are a couple random shots of my hand in front of the tree trying to demonstrate the expansive canopy followed by a shot up its skirt.
A shot of one of the bends.
A shot during the cleaning. Pulling bark and removing dead things and piddly crotch stuff.
When I was done with the cleaning to the best of my abilities in the time I had to prepare for the workshop.
Here it is in the hotel bathtub for watering. It does not fit in the bathroom or the tub.
More to follow sometime.
