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.
AUTUMN FLOWERING ACACIA (秋咲きのミモザ)
Acacia conferta (Golden-top) is blooming at the top of our garden.
Iｔ bears bright yellow spherical fluffy flowers just like other acacia plants,
and has drooping branches and very fine leaves similar to Japanese cedar.
