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.
A SUNNY MORNING AFTER THE TERRIBLE STORM (ひどい嵐のあとの晴れの朝)
The terrible storm has gone and it was sunny in this morning.
Fortunately, there was no serious damage in the gardens.
In the main garden, a standard trumpet vine was leaned,
however, no shoots were broken.
Most of plants in the border have no problem.
Sunflower and sunchoke are leaned and their leaves were damaged.
But, the flower of sunflower was not damaged.
In the kitchen garden, none of apple fruits fell,
and some of roses were flowering in the morning sunshine.
