This one got a bit dry earlier in spring but fortunately no real damage done this time.

I see that Steven needs 2 final photos to stay in the running.

This tree has achieved the basic shape and size I'd planned for. There is not much room for real ramification on shohin this size. I'll just keep trimming new shoots as they grow and thin out each winter.
It is currently sitting on the water tray to help maintain moisture over the hotter months.
