Steve and Jim (A friend and local club member in WY) just returned from a Seasonal with Michael Hagedorn. Here’s a bit of what they were up to. This Limber Pine is one that Steve collected several years ago. It turned out great, and I’m excited to watch it develop! I wish I could have been there. Maybe next time! 🙂
Until a couple of years ago, I’d never worked with Limber Pine, one of our North American white pines. It’s growing on me. Buds back well, nice short needle, strong. Has a nice name, Limber Pine, which comes more trippingly off the tongue than Loblolly Pine, for instance. And it has great deadwood features.
This Limber Pine was styled in a Seasonal Workshop a couple of weeks ago. It was collected by a student of mine, Steve Varland of Backcountry Bonsai, who was able to be in the Seasonal to help style it. Loads of fun!
