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.
PINK OXALIS IN THE PEONY BED (シャクヤク花壇のピンクのオキザリス)
In autumn a number of pink oxalis grew from seed in the peony bed.
They are self-sown seedlings, and now they bear cute pink flowers.
The flowers open only in sun light.
