Cascade Juniper #2 Update

This is my 2nd (and more successful) cascade styled juniper that I'm working on.  a picture from last year, then a few updates before/after today's work.  Shortened it some actually to put more motion into it.  Plan to move it into it's first pot very soon as the weather continues to warm.

After last year's work in late mid August.

Today before work begins.

Wire off except for last bit that is giving the main branch a bend inwards.  Rotated slightly to find it's new front.

Some pinching done, new bend at the bottom to give more depth and better motion.

 Top a little more refined, direction to apex given for now.

Bottom given a little depth; firm direction for the rear to go.
