My wife and I started gardening in Fukuoka (Japan) in 2003. There was nothing but muddy clayey sloping land. At the beginning we made several structure such as steps and paths, and planted turf, fruit trees, roses, herbs etc.
In 2010, we visited several famous English gardens, including Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Mottisfont Abbey Garden and Hidcote Manor Garden. We were shocked by the glory of those gardens. Since then, we have been trying to make little but glorious gardens by ourselves.
THE HARVEST MOON
It was a very fine day today, and the full moon is rising from the east.
We enjoyed looking the harvest moon and eating ｔsukimi dango (moon-viewing dumplings) with friends in our neighbourhood. It's an old custom in Japan.
