Today is the last time I get to play with my trees before Christmas. I have been rewiring the main branches of my root over rock shohin juniper with a view to opening up the foliage pads, which were beginning to look like a single homogenous mass and also to allow light into the interior. I have also managed to compact the foliage at the rear of the tree and bring it a little closer to the trunk. This is how it looks at the moment, after the work

I am pleased with the progress made this year, on this tree. This is a reminder of how it looked at the start of the year.
