That is beautiful !!

RE: my little piece of japan (2)

Real nice! Neat and tidy. (Unlike my garden)
I'm guessing you live in the Pacific northwest, west of the Cascade mountains. The clues are, the basalt column and Swordfern. Is that a Vine Maple?

amazing! love it.

RE: my little piece of japan (2)

If I can throw in some criticism, those pink flower bushes should have been used more sparingly. And the path would probably have been better off without that gravel. Japanese gardens often do make use of gravel, but one must know exactly how to properly use it.

Also, the Japanese influence seems a little 'forced', really not something one wants to do if one truly wants to emulate Japanese aesthetic values. Neither is your garden very grand.

Honestly, the basalt (although I do like it) may not have been the best to go with the rounded form of the Japanese garden.
