Let me introduce you to my bonsai! I'm sure he'd be pleased to meet you.
He's a Japanese white pine (Mädchenkiefer in German), and I adopted him in March 2012 when he was just a sapling from a tree nursery.
The photo is from the beginning of December, just after I wrapped his pot in bast fiber in order to protect him from the cold (he needs to stay outside all year).
If you take a closer look, you can see that his branches are freshly wired and brought in shape from the last time we were at our bonsai school in mid-November. Everything prepared for a good development next year!
Oh, and don't tell him, but he might get a companion next spring. ;)
