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.
CHERRY BLOSSOM AT NIGHT (夜桜)
The cherry was in full bloom a couple of days ago.
Its petals have started to fall and leaves are growing rapidly.
Pale pink petals on the glass table are shining in the light of illumination.
This weekend will be the last chance of watching cherry blossom.
We are enjoying cherry blossom tomorrow afternoon with our neighbours.
