Hawthorn With a Flower

I am letting this Hawthorn grow out to allow it to gain strength and to put on a few more options in tertiary branching but just because it was in flower (only a few) I took a photo. You can see that it is filling out and soon it will be a ball.

When the new growth hardens off I will trim it back and make some decisions on its future direction. I want to make it narrower than it is now and to get some separation between the foliage masses, especially on the right side as you look at it. With a little bit of luck it may be exhibited next spring.

This tree was dug quite a few years ago because it had a trunk with taper and movement, things that are sometimes difficult to find in yamadori.
