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.
OUR GARDEN AT THE BEGINNING OF SEPTEMBER (九月初めの庭)
September has brought a much drier weather to our garden.
High temperatures are around 30 degrees,
and humidity is less than 50%.
It's much easier for us to garden.
Trumpet vine is showing a second flush,
and roses flower repeatedly.
