Windswept Cotoneaster

I dug this tree two or three years ago and always had shohin in mind for it right from the start. It sat in a plastic pot for a while which is usual and in the mean time I made this pot for it. The pot represents a sandstone rocky outcrop and the tree tells the story of being buffeted by strong winds and its successful struggle to survive against these conditions.

This photo was taken in November 2018 shown while it is in flower.
This photo is from April 2019 showing the flowers were successful because it now has fruit.

Much more improvement is needed but it is headed in the right direction.
