Yesterday I was working again on my friend's mugo pine. It was time to wire it for the second time. We did the first styling on this one last spring after it was sitting in its container for about 2-3 years after collecting, so it was nice and helthy. The progress this tree made in two growing seasons is immense and is already looking very fine. I'm just not completelly satisfied with the second branch on the left. It needs to be brought more to the right. The tree will be repotted in spring in a smaller pot.
Before any work in spring 2013.
