The homemade rock in the bonsai landscape that I started last year is beginning to take on a more natural appearance as the stone weathers and the moss takes hold. It will take another few years of refinement to get the trees shaped the way I would like them and to introduce more variety into the under planting but it’s getting there.
This is how it looked in July 2015, when the rock had set and I began to plant the trees
and this was it during the construction process in June 2015. The full construction method can be found by following the links to my 2 earlier posts. Post 1 and Post 2
