Bonsai miniature with elf

Today I took the spruce that I had started pruning the other day and did a little more. I also started wiring one of the branches. I haven't decided on its final shape yet, so I wasn't too aggressive with the pruning. Next I did a bit of the roots. I couldn't find the right size container, so I uses one that was a bit big. This is probably just temporary until it finds it's way into a larger garden scene, but it is cute now. I added a farmer elf that I found in an antique store last weekend in Ellijay. It was a set for $6 and these are only a few of the pieces.
