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.
AKEBIA FRUITS 2015 (アケビの実)
Most of akebia vine fruits have ripened at the upper entrance of our garden.
Today I harvested them, and gave some to our friends.
I tasted jelly material that contains many seeds,
and it was ddecently sweet.
