Japanese Garden Pictures - pictures speaks a thousand words.



My first Japanese garden picture is a photo of the garden was in 2003 with a very agressive wisteria on an old pagola and some very tame Sulpher Creasted Cockatoos that the children feed.The wisteria was very nice when flowering with pendulus purple flowers .. but they are a very fast grower and needed to be pruned very often. Nine years later we are still finding shoots coming through the decking from seeds!

MY GARDEN AS IT WAS IN 2003.
