Wired Pine

I finally got round to wiring this young Scots Pine into a sort of literati image.  It’ll do for an initial styling.  A lot of buds are ready to pop next season in the lower half of the trunk and I’ll let these grow out to improve the trunk taper. Eventually they will be jinned or chopped.  I don’t need much increase in height or thickness, just better bark that only comes with age.  I’ve not seen many shohin literati trees so this will be something a bit different.
