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.
BLUE & PURPLE FLOWERS IN THE GARDEN NOW (Part 2) (今咲いている青い花たち２)
At the white wooden fence,
Yesterday-Today-and-Tomorrow (Brunfelsia latifolia) is now flowering.
The fragrant flowers open purple, fade to lavender, then white.
In the pot beside the central flower bed,
Geranium 'Azure Rush' has started to flower.
Because of the high temperature and humidity in summer,
its survival is sometime difficult in our garden.
Fortunately it flowers again.
This petunia flowers every year in a pot.
The season of viola is almost over in late May in our area,
but it shows beautiful flowers even now in a pot or a flower bed.
