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.
FLOWERING CLIMBING ROSES IN THE GARDEN (咲き始めた庭のつるバラたち)
Most of the climbing roses have started to bloom.
On the iron arch below of the sleeper steps,
Rosa 'Angela' shows beautiful pink colour.
(Behind them is white flowers of Benthamidia japonica)
And on the arch of the other side of the steps,
Rosa 'Pierre de Ronsard’ bears gorgeous flowers.
On the south-west facing wall of the house,
Rosa 'Summer Snow' bears pure white flowers.
Over the brick wall,
Rosa 'Pauls Paul's Himalayan Musk’ has just started to flower.
