I came across this picture from 1994. It is me repotting (alone) my huge Celtis chinensis. This tree “THE LION CRUSHER” was once a proud part of my growing collection those days. I loved this tree, because it was, a tree! You felt dwarfed, when you looked at it from close by. It gave me the feeling that I use to feel when I was a little child, playing under need a big tree in the forest. But I had to let it go to warmer places, it was struggling to much in my cold climate! Showing this difficult species at the “Ginkgo Award” was a highlight for me and the tree. I still miss the feel off this real tree!
