Our Asian Garden

Sept 2

Ten years on from March 27, 2011
With sake, champagne and friends we celebrated our first anniversary in this house and the opening of our Japanese garden with a blessing by Kiyomi Takayama, pouring sake onto the ground: Takusan no shiawase ga kono niwa ni furisosogi masu you ni! (May much happiness pour into this garden!)

The bonsais are just trees we have saved from death. The large Moreton Bay Fig we found in the middle of our narrow garden path in Marrickville, 20 years ago. They can grow up to 50 metres tall.
