All compliments gratefully received Simon. I showed this juniper as part of a shohin display at Canberra Bonsai exhibition last weekend.
Keels posted a picture of it the other day - viewtopic.php?f=25&t=22885&start=15

Update for this juniper.

Foliage pads are building up as time goes on. Maybe it is time to extend the shari some more?
These little ones are on a sand tray for the summer and now under light shade cloth to protect them from extreme heat.

Maintenance and refinement continue as before. Regular finger pinching and occasional thinning with scissors.
this photo is from the AWBS display at the Wodonga Show in March.
