The Gardener’s View

Pruning a persimmon tree under an invigorating autumn sky. Gardeners have to keep their balance as they move from branch to branch to prune a tree.
We took these shots of our gardener’s various postures that change so flexibly as he stretches his arm, clips the branches, stoops and then stands up again.

Murinan Miniature Japanese Moss Gardening Experience

On the afternoon of October 6 (Sat.), we held a moss garden making event. As they toured the moss garden, participants eagerly asked our guide about the different varieties of moss they were looking at and touching. They then enjoyed making their own moss gardens in the Western-style building, discussing what sort of moss to use, and commenting how nice it would be to take their finished gardens home with them.
