Literati English Elm in Winter

A little while ago I posted a couple of photos of tall “skinny” bonsai and one was this English Elm. This tree has of course lost its leaves and has been given its autumn trim and now it is time to alter the design.

It needs a new pot and I am thinking round, but smaller than this one and in a different colour. I unfortunately have this “thing” about green pots for deciduous trees but hopefully I will find one that is suitable for the tree but not green, time will tell.

I have decided to slightly alter the viewing side and I will be removing the long root at the rear at the time of repotting.

This is the new side and a repot in late August is the plan.
