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.
PURE WHITE FLOWERS OF EASTER LILY (純白のテッポウユリの花)
The fourth variety of lily in our garden has started to bloom
beside the rose arbour.
Its name is Teppōyuri or Takasagoyuri in Japanese (Lilium longiflorum),
and is often called the Easter lily in English.
We got young plants from our friend, and this is the first time they flower.
