A couple of weeks ago I re-potted my little juniper, which I discovered had spider mites. (That is a whole other thing, and I am working on getting the tree healthy. Once it fills out more on the top, I will share pictures.) What is one to do when left with an empty bonsai pot? Buy another bonsai tree! This time I picked up a nice catlin elm, a type of Chinese elm. A few days ago the tree really took off with leaves popping out all over. I need to get in there and do some trimming and wiring, but I think this tree is pretty awesome.
UPDATE: I replaced the rock at the base of the tree with a tiny Buddha. Perfect size and it looks good.
