Three shots over 3 weeks. Focus here is on the branch on the right.

Sometimes I find it useful to focus on one specific part of one specific plant, just to monitor in concrete terms, how much growth is occurring. That was relevant here because these small white pines were repotted twice in a short time and I wanted to be sure there were no issues. See it grow like this and you don’t have to worry.



Keshiki means something like “landscape” in japanese and is pronounced kesh-key. The term is used by Kenji Kobayashi in his book to refer to simple “landscape” bonsai that he creates.

My keshiki come from the same idea.
