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.
PRUNING APPLE IN THE POTAGER IN PREPARATION FOR TYPHOON ATTACK (台風来襲に備えてリンゴの剪定)
The strong typhoon 'Jongdari' is coming from the east.
This is a quite rare course of typhoon (from east to west),
and this is, I think, the first typhoon that comes from the east in my life.
