First wiring, defoliated to do it neatly, full leaf 6 weeks later, now a few years of refining to do



As it arrived

My laryx came from kaizen too... He has some good trees and the mail order was perfect.

By the way, this is a really beautiful design, simple and effective. Liked it from the moment I saw it.
Makes me want to just rest under the tree and ponder. Especially the first image.

Maybe a little more negative space, but -------------

"Clouds go by,
and hide the sun,
leaves are falling on everyone,
I'm getting "............................... apologies to ELO.

and in leaving the image -------- "my Shangri-la has gone away,
She's faded like the Beatles on Hey" ...................

Hope Marcus intends to keep it.
Later.

hi Khaimrai,

Thanks,
yes i will be keeping it and just refining the foliage pads more and more over the next few years. The main branches have been wired with more space than we can see in the pictures at the moment, but the leaves are still 'full size' so the spaces do look small. as the leaves reduce more and more the spaces will appear again (hopefully haha).

cheers, glad you like it - it was a bargain too - I'm very happy with the purchase

Marcus
