crabapple bonsai, mica pot

Spring is just around the corner here in the Ohio River Valley. Turns out that my crabapple wants it to be spring right now and is furiously trying to grow leaves. I repotted into a round mica pot to hopefully develope its roots a little more because they are so lacking. The bark is developing nicely and the tree appears healthy. Since all of the primary branch structure in position, now we will build the canopy out. I was thinking maybe even a larger than "usual" canopy since the tree is so tall and snakey. I'm excited to see what happens.
