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.
BLUE SKY AND RAINY SEASON IS OVER (青空と梅雨明け)
The Met Office declared that the rainy season is over today in the northern part of Kyushu Island.
The sky is blue and some white clouds are floating.
Our gardens are covered with weeds and shoots of climbing roses are growing long, which make the gardens disorderly.
