Bonsai Thursday with Dave.

Today when Dave came over we had a look at this Hawthorn tp see if we could correct some of the faults it has.
---------------------------------------
The main fault is the center branch on the left, which just does not look right to me.


I tried lifting the end of the branch to make a separation from the lower branch, Not good, so try something else.


A change of viewing angle, better but it makes the thicker part look very flat.


We came up with the idea of splitting the branch to enable it to be pulled up, then lowered the pad to be more in line with the apex.


I think this is a better option once the branch is lifted a little more.
