I do have another juniper that I have had for 20 years, but I need to do some work on it before I present a picture of it.  It is still a work in progress. 
Makes me wonder if he also waxes classic cars and teaches karate... ???
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

I had an interest in bonsai, and started some, then life stepped in and I let them expire.  about 46 years ago when our first was born.

I meant to go out yesterday and do some harvesting while I cleared a bunch of sticker bushes, but got caught up mowing the back field and getting stung in the face by a handful of bees. After that the mower belt broke so I gave up and started drinking. 

I've got some willow trees out there I'd like to get some cuttings from, supposedly they'll root very easily. I have several small leafed trees of unknown varieties that I think would work well too. Maybe one of these days!

I know balm of gilead is easy, but not aspen. And I have discovered black elder is very easy to start from a green stick from last year's growth. They grow like a bad weed. :D
