A few weeks ago, Christianne requested for photos of our tiny Japanese-inspired garden and some gardening tips. Though late, I am glad to oblige to the first request. But gardening tips?? I need them myself! The green-gene skipped my thumb, though somehow managed to creep into my brain… So I’m another kind of green! 😛 (Environmentalist, anuveh!)
The garden was designed by my sister DaVinci. She bought the plants and supplies (pebbles, adobe blocks, sand, pots, etc) from gardening shops at the Manila Seedling Bank along Quezon Avenue, Quezon City. Then she hired two or three men to carry out her vision. If I remember right, the whole project was done in three days. She has a creative mind, which I don’t!
Here are some photos I took when we just moved in late last year. There was a light afternoon shower, and the plants were looking so vibrant and refreshed.
I’m glad I took these photos. The garden used to be beautiful… currently, it needs
some a lot of grooming. As I said, I’m not much of a gardener. The Chinese bamboo and horsetail plants are so prolific. They’re all over! How do I control where they sprout? Any tips?
