Yeah I would also be very interested in a progress report :) Since Im also thinking about making a fence of some kind.

Yeah that scene is really nice!! I wish it could be much easier to find good stepping stones like that. I wanted to add some that is leading to my now isolated "pond island" in the middle of the lawn, to give it a connection to the rest of the garden...

I think Scott is out of town at the moment, so it may be a day or two before he can respond.

Oh its quite all right... its still just mid april... for me the real fun gardening start in mid may :) Right now Im only thinking about design and design.. and reading all the books I have about japanese gardening... still too cold and boring outdoors to do something fun :)


Oh a qyestion, what do you know about the plant Cornus cousa satomi?

In my local nursery they have this speciment. I think the flowers look nice and are not that dominating... has anyone heard about it? I was thinking of having it close to the wood deck.

Sorry for the long absence; spring is very trying this year...

No fence yet, sorry to say. I am still negotiating with the SO and finances are tight. My boonsai experience has taught me to look a long time before deciding on action (or that is what I tell myself to keep procrastinating...) :roll:

Cornus kousa 'Satomi' is a great plant Henrik; clear pink flower unlike most pink dogwoods. Problem free and hardy and despite prolific fruiting (edible at that) non-invasive. Really good choice!

Hi!

Long time no see! Im wondering if the helpful gardener has come around to build a fence? I remember that lovely scene under your big maple with a lantern and tsukubai... eager to see more eye candy like that :-)
