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.
FLOWERS OF HERBS IN THE TERRACED BEDS (段々畑のハーブの花たち)
Today I post photographs of the terraced herb beds.
Some plants have started to bloom.
There are three levels of bed.
In the lower bed, rose geranium, cherry sage, camomille
and borage bear flowers.
In the middle bed, salvia nemorosa is flowering.
And in the upper bed, salvia guaranitica and Mexican bush sage
have started to bloom.
Different colours of their leaves are also beautiful.
