Cheap boxwood project

I acquired this boxwood from a local flowershop around the corner.

Only 3,50 EU it was a bargain. Very common used plants in gardens. I use these to test how much they can taken to see if it is possible to create something bonsai-like out of it. Using ordinary garden stock not propagated for bonsai use is always a challenge and a lot of fun to do.

I used guy wires because I was lazy and wanted to finish the job fast, however they seem to work fine. Future plans are improving the deadwood and letting the lowest branch grow out to fit the shilouet. I kept the lowest branch because otherwise the tree would look like any other tree.
