EBA chineese juniper

This spring on the EBA in Vienna on the New talent contest I styled this juniper. I have repotted it this saturday as a demonstration for the beginners at the beginner course.

Shohin white pine

I bought this pinus parviflora last year in a store named Bauhaus for only 25 € ! When I brought it home the same day I gave it the first styling (photo #1). I repoted it that day too.
In spring this year I took another precised look at the pine and decided for a completelly different shape (photo #3). Well and this week I potted it into this shell (last two photos).

Beginner course

It's a long time since I perticipated on such a course and I don't need one again. Nevertheless I perticipated on this one. I wanted to become a bonsai insrtuctor. For that I had to lead a peace of the lecture and help the beginners.
Whether I get that denomination is a question of the township council.
