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.
RAINY SUNDAY (雨の日曜日)
The sunrise is rapidly becoming later in September, and the sun rises
at the more southern direction.
Yesterday, the sun rose at the top of the Mt. Itoshima Fuji (Kaya) and it looked as if it erupted.
I woke up this morning very early, and the sky was dark and the air was much cooler.
I opened the window and read a book at the window.
Small fishing boats went fishing to Tsushima Channel.
The catch of red sea bream of Itoshima City, where we live, is the biggest in Japan.
Our garden is illuminated at night by a outside LED light.

And in the morning, it started rain, and it continued all day, today.
Total rain fall exceeded 100mm in 24 hours.
I couldn't do gardening, and I designed a new arbour seat.
