Slanting Crabapple Bonsai

Here is a crabapple that I collected from the side of a road a couple years ago. I am surprised that it already looks this good. This plant throws out buds in the strangest places! Even a root sprouted buds so I turned it into a seperate plant, a clone of the parent tree. Sadly no blooms this year. I guess the tree needs mature branches. I've been looking around in the wilderness for more of these and I have discovored quite a few. I'll see if I can get some or them, if they aren't too large to dig up ;)
