Trimming a couple junipers

Continuing from last week’s post, here are a couple Itoigawas that have been growing all year. Since they’re not going to be shown anytime soon, I plan to let them grow fuller and gain strength this year, but also want to balance them out a bit by trimming the long “runners”:

In the fall, last year’s wires can be removed, and the growth can be thinned out further. For now, they get to continue basking in the sun, fat & happy!
