Update July 2017:

Privet bonsai

During July 2017 I decided to re-work the Privet. The deadwood was re-hardened, this time using Cyanacrylate (Superglue) prior to some further refinement of the wood itself (for further details of this technique please see Using Superglue To Harden Deadwood On Bonsai).The branches were then defoliated, pruned, wired and repositioned.

...........and from my preferred view, turned a few degrees anti-clockwise so that the rear of the deadwood can be seen through the gap in the tree.
