My first olive tree

I present you the story of an olive tree (olea europea).
I have this tree for about one year now. I bought it at the EBA this year in Vienna, Austria. I styled it is spring at a workshop with Vaclav Novak, that was at the bonsai exhibition in Ljubljana, Slovenia this year.

This one I have now for two years. This spring I have cut and wired it again. Today I took a better look on it and now I think it is too wide.

Two minutes lather this sketch came into being

And another one minute I cut two branches away.

This is the result now

Dead season

I am now writting here, in the dead season, as I call it, so you won't get too bored. In this time of year there is nothing else to do in bonsai, then watering and fertilizing. well and we can enjoy by watching our bonsai develop.
I promise I will be more active in autumn :)
