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.
SNOWDROPS:a sign of spring (スノードロップは春のきざし)
Today is the last day of January. Snowdrops (Galanthus) have started to flower at the white fence. Galanthus flower, which is a sign of early spring, is so cute and we love it very much.
Hellebores (クリスマスローズ) beside snowdrops are not in bloom yet.
