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.
WISTERIA COLOUR AND YELLOW BOOK (藤色とイエローブック)
Wisteria floribunda in the raised bed planted with peony is now in full bloom.
A sweet fragrance is floating in the air.
And, wisteria-colour clematis 'Shishinden' is also in bloom on a rose arch.
It bears large flowers.
The Yellow Book 2016 has been delivered this afternoon.
This is the first time we bought the book published by NGS.
We are going to UK this summer,
and we want to visit some gardens listed in this book.
