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.
SALVIAS IN THE TERRACED HERB BEDS (ハーブの段々畑のサルビアたち）
Roses are still blooming,
and salvias are also flowering in the terraced herb beds.
They have different fragrances.
