I cannot believe what I just did :o)

Hi,

I cannot believe what I just did.. I made a bonsai!

First of all I would like to thank you for the perfect tips and
walkthrough on ?how to create a bonsai? on your site.

I woke-up this morning, with the idea of making a Bonsai. Never done it, don?t know anyone who has done it before. I googled ?how to make a bonsai? and the first link was your site. Reading your tutorial I just took a ?tree? that I recently planted and used it for my Bonsai. I was too excited and didn?t feel like getting the small stones for the soil however I will do that tomorrow. I did buy I nice pot, doh!

Anyway, I add a picture of the result. I think it looks like a Bonsai and I?m so delighted with the result. The moss I just found in my garden. I hope it will survive. I guess the first days are critical to know if I didn?t took of too many roots or branches.

This will not be my last Bonsai of that I?m sure.

Kind Regards,
Jochem

good...lots of improvements..but i know you will get a hand of it someday...got lots to learn...many ways of cutting, propagating etc. we see bonsai as an aged old looking tree, try to make it as agely looking as possible, further more search on the works of Kimura, kabayashi, saburo kato and all other masters in the bonsai world...i'm just a tipster who had learned from stick to tree...now i'm an aged banyan tree...try your luck..be inspired... hang on

When you cut a branch that should not be cuted down, just make the most out of it...---me :-)
