Beech trees - Buky R.I.P.

This is the last goodbye to my beech trees. They started to enlarge the new buds in spring, but then after the strong late frosts in the april/ may, didn´t wake up. Picture from may 2017.
Toto je posledné zbohom týmto trom bukom. Na jar začali nalievať puky, ale po neskorých silných mrazoch na prelome apríla a mája sa už nezobudili. Fotka z mája 2017.

Privet stump

Big ligustrum grows already in a first bonsai pot. It´s not exactly as I wish. New pot should be a little wider and not so deep. I would like to enhance the impression of the group of trees, growing in the flat landscape. The tree is really too heavy weight to carry for one person. The pot is 52 cm long and I said to myself no more such huge trees...
This is after the second trimming in this season. It has quite a brokoli-look. I would like to have in the crown or silhouette some empty spaces, but I´m not sure where to trim and where not...
I hate sharp and exactly defined pads on deciduous trees, they just don´t grow that way. But I feel I neet to lighten the crown. I don´t know how, so I let it in this state for now. I just pulled down some low branches, to make the crown wider.
