There’s something so restful and beautiful about Japanese gardens that I have a real need to incorporate some of their themes into our garden. I remember being in the Far East as a teenager and being fascinated by the gorgeous garden designs with their bonsai trees and blossom. The whole experience of just being in such a place was so healing that I was happy to just sit there and soak it up for hours. I suppose it’s as well that I don’t have a garden like that yet because I think my studies would go out of the window as I immersed myself in the beauty of nature. One day.
