    I’m curious, in a couple of your pictures there appears to be a wine cork screw, what purpose does that serve?

      Well spotted… The corkscrew is for Opening the copious bottles of beers consumed during the Burrs weekend. It’s all about Bonsai but very much a social weekend!!! 😉

    Hi Bry
    I think there is huge potential for the tree but the 2 potential jins at the back hurt the design a bit. They kind of break the flow of the tree up. Either make them much smaller or even take them right off. In the drawing they are smaller and I think that suits the tree better.
    Good luck with th project
    Qualicum Brian

      Hi Brian;
      Thanks for your reply… These photos were taken back in 2011. It’s very much a development posting, part 2 in a few days.
      As for the Jin – it’s one of the elements on the tree that will be worked on in time.
