Tree Prep for the National Show-
This is a small Rocky Mountain Juniper which its owner has nicknamed ‘Twisty.’ We were joking that this is not unlike calling your cat ‘Kitty’… simple, obvious, and hard to forget.
I collected this tree years ago and have the joy of continuing to work on it occasionally-
‘Twisty’, the Rocky Mountain Juniper undergoing a bit of primping, sweet talking, and coddling this past week, in preparation for the National Show in early September.
