The HUG_Prunus mahaleb with a single live vein and bulky deadwood
No TdF cycling today and the deeply buried thorn in my right palm prevents me from most of the bonsai activities - so a good time to share another piece of a dead wood... Right, so what we have here is "a typical bonsai". The size of both jins is too big and there is too much dead wood. A single narrow live vein that feeds an airy crown. Something you may find on a junipers, but not really on a deciduous tree. Unless the tree has started a countdown to pack it... But despite all this there it is. And I do like it. It is not a bunjin but I have tried to style the crown into something that reflects my vision how I see the bunjin-gi during my day dreaming procrastination. The narrow live vein is the only vital line that connects roots to the leaves. Cliffs heated by the sun, scarce water supply, biting frosts. All that is deeply embedded in the face of this little tree. Would you expect a flourishing crown of foliage on a tree that lives in such biotype?
