Early autumn and, as this tree had grown so well I decided to complete it's first styling. Wiring is very difficult as the fine growth is easily broken. Just two weeks later and new shoots are beginning to emerge, in December! Fei Lian is the Chinese god of the wind, direct translation would be "flying curtain". I thought this seemed appropriate.
