Inferior deciduous material

This is obviously inferior deciduous material. This year, I have decided to work on everything. No more selection ...this one I like...this one I don' those trees that I don't like very much just stand in garden corners or under the shelves neglected for years. I noticed that I am very relaxed when I work on such material...on the contrary to some trees that I consider important. That means I often enjoy working on those ugly ducklings and sometimes the result isn't so bad. In this case, we have neglected little fat carpinus that needed basic branch selection and establishing main lines of possible future crown.
The result is terrible. Now it looks even more ugly that before wiring and branch selection. But, believe it or not, this is the only way to start building the future for this little ugly stump. New smaller pot follows.
Next year...if I don't give it away to will see much better picture.
At he end, this could be interesting.

Prunus - Wiring - winter 2013.

This prunus was never very good material...too fat, too fat and just...too fat. And without much character.
But, then, almost the years seemed pretty nice starter.
Well, during the years, it turned out to a nice little picture of scary old rotten and weather beaten tree.
The best I can do is to keep going on with will be a beauty..some will be surprised, in spring, it is full of little white beautiful flowers.
And now it's the time for remake...a wire remake. I is too, hard thining out and total wiring.

No video this time :)
