The Gardener’s View

Pruning of the evergreens surrounding Murin-an is now finished.
The finished look appears natural and casual, but provides an even clearer and more beautiful view of the Higashiyama Mountains.

Further in, there are Camellia Japonicas starting to bloom on the right side of the waterfall.
The adorable way they pop up here and there is sure to bring a smile to your face.

Event Report2018/11/16

Gardener’s Lecture No.4

For this session, we plucked pine needles, collected fallen leaves and mended moss on November 10 (Sat). Once we broke into groups inside the Western-style building and learned about how to pluck pine needles, we were off to the garden! Working so closely to the pine needles with our hands, we were soothed by the unique fragrance coming from them. The dynamic work of shaving the Japanese red pine trunks drew a big cheer from everyone. We also cleaned up leaves by removing them from the top of the moss, picked the Hypnum plumaeforme Wilson out of the Juniper haircap moss, and mended areas where the soil had become exposed with okinagoke moss.

The Gardener’s View

Bright Red Maple Trees
Unlike last year, the autumn colors have arrived quite early this fall season. When the wind is still, you can see a crystal clear reflection of the three-tiered waterfall on the surface of the pond. When the wind blows, the pond’s ripples give it the brilliant look of hand-worked glass.

Black fruit on the Eurya Japonica
On the southern side of the garden path and just in front of the three-tiered waterfall, there are Eurya Japonicas that are hanging low with fruit. They are so small that you might overlook them, but we recommend looking at them against the background of the moss or together with the fallen maple leaves.
