Below pictures show the progress
of this bonsai tree over time.

AUTUNM 4rd year.

Age     : 13 years
Origine : Urban Yamadori

I changed the front and did some carving 
work on the natural dead wood.
This is the result after 3 year bonsai
training...Hope you like it. 
parthenocissus quinquefolia

EARLY SPRING 4rd year.

As you see my Parthenocissus quinquefolia 
has been cut back drastically. But it 
received organic feeding and I guess it 
will flourish this year. Wait and see.

AUTUMN 3rd year.

Great autumn colours on this Virginia creeper.
Next year I will plant it into a real
bonsai pot.
Every year it's the same routine in autumn:
cut the branches back and so we work on the
ramification for next year.


SPRING 2nd year.

The parthenocissus is still in 
the same old box.
But he is a long way from being a bonsai.

SPRING first year.

At the time I did not think of it,
but now the wooden box seems very
appropriate for this wild vine!

This is what was left from an old 
Virginia Creeper against the wall
of my house.
