Tilia_7 Virtual

This is a virtual-draft of the Holsten-Linden.
It goes without saying that this draft will need al long, long time
to become reality.
Anyway, that is fine by me ...

( The name holsten_linde refers to the collecting-site of the tree, 50 kilometers northbound of my home. This very nice area is called Holstein and it is part of the northern german lowlands).
Well, I wish I could say "sorry" to this tree. This linden came to me in the beginning of 2012.
Because of some mistakes in the fertilising-concept, I almost killed this tree.
But now she is regaining.
In autumn this year I will have a look wether the tree is ready for some basic carvings.

pretty in pink

Update Tilia_2

Pink and fresh green.
I love the colour of the buds's tiny leafs in contrast to the colour of the new shoots.
It is a snapshot of the lindens spring, that will vanish all too fast.

There are maybe too many branches so far, but cutting is easier than growing ...
In two weeks or so, the wire will be removed. The tree will be allowed to grow freely this season.
