I like your use of walkways and screening to provide a sense of destinations and viewpoints.

It doesn't seem to be a huge garden so you've shown more restraint than I ever could - you've planted in groups to give a disciplined and structured effect which I appreciate (but couldn't do...:-((( )

I predict that the garden bed with the Japanese maple will be widened Soon. It has that feel to it.

The conifers are beautiful. They might swamp the garden in future. For now they provide lovely 'bones'

Very tidy, lush green... I just loved the pic with terrace and stairs coming down in the garden.. although its personal choice (and of course the zone limitations) but I would have added more colorful foliage like Caladiums or Coleus in the summer...

In short it was refreshing virtual tour for me, thanks for sharing..

I appreciate the GREEN. Those of us living in DRY summer California when we travel are always happy to see a lush green country side, especially when it is also a well tended garden. Many of us would really like to know what part of the world you garden in. Al

It is all just so beautiful, so private and so perfect, with so many textures and colors. It was nice seeing it in different stages and seasons.

I am really wowed by your grass too, and often wonder how folks can ever mow with beds so close together without throwing the grass into/on to nearby beds. Do you use a mulching mower or maybe one with a bagger?

I'm really impressed by it all, and see that it has been a labor of love.

You do very well with English as a second language. A lot of English speaking folks have not mastered it as well as you have.
