This photo is of Yuki and Crispin in our garden in Norwich,England
Our garden is a blend of Englsih lawns and typical English flowers such as snapdragons,roses,tulips,lavender as well as a herb garden and a sort of orchard area with plums,apples,quinces,blackberries,gooseberries.There is also a Thai fountain complete with Thai princess.But in this photo you can see the Japanese garden
But the funny thing is,that I had no interest in gardens at all until I finally came back to live in Norwich about 8 years ago.For me,gardening is both physical exercise and planning and merging.It is wonderful to see it all come to fruition in the spring and summer months and to sit back and have a cold beer at the end of it.
My father added one or two Oriental touches such as this Japanese bridge made out of old table legs.
and this old Chinese warrior
There's a Japanese cherry blossom tree in the front.This was taken at the Norwich-Japanese Hanami party and I am on the left in the kimino.
