Japan / Spring in local shrine
« Last post by Haru Yamada on February 22, 2021, 05:38:43 AM »
My wife tried to take me - an old dog - out for a walk to the shrine, telling me that the plum blossoms were at their best. It was an amazing tree, hanging from high up  and reaching down almost to the ground.

Then there was a big bonus to the blossoms....... 

I had transplanted one of our hydrangeas in the local shrine last year. It somehow disappeared after a few months.  I was much distressed, thinking somebody just uprooted it and threw it away. Digging some of the earth containing lots of dead leaves to take it to the Wild Garden near by, I found the hydrangea buried deep under the earth to my delight! It had some young buds trying to come out.

Pergola add to the beauty of the outdoor living space, and allow homeowners to spend more time outdoors. A garden pergola feels as comfortable as the indoor living area, especially when it has seats and couches similar to the indoor space. Hardwood garden gates are functional as they are attractive. Homeowners can choose wooden gates near me to match with the picket fencing and the driveway gates in a home. Looking to expand the outdoor living space with garden decking installation? Wood decking and decking fencing can help achieve that. Decking and fencing go hand in hand as the same decking boards can be used to create a decking board fence.​Fence installation is a delicate process as the fence must be functional and attractive. To do that, homeowners need the best Northampton fence company.

The most overlooked yet essential aspect of a well-designed landscape is hardscape. Your hardscapes decide which parts of your landscape are on display, which are off-limits, and how visitors engage with your space. Learn more: dtelandscape

Hi Emily, I've mostly lived in cities and have greatly valued urban green spaces as for many years I did not have a garden. So I would use local parks to sit in, relax or walk. Living in cities such as London I have found green spaces to be vital to my physical and mental wellbeing. They have provided me with escape from noise and pollution.  I enjoy the natural colours of the environment in contrast to the cement and greyness of the city buildings or the artificial colours of street signs, shop fronts, billboards etc. I feel I breathe more deeply and begin to relax when I am in green spaces. The horizons are bigger, particularly when I have lived in densely built, high rise areas with few long distance views. I also find it comforting to see and hear wildlife, even in the smallest of urban spaces - bees, butterflies, birds.  And to see trees and plants growing gives me a sense of comfort in the inevitability of the seasons. I have definitely come to appreciate local green spaces even more during the lockdowns of the pandemic. They induce in me a calmness and a reassurance that not all things have changed. I have been guerrilla gardening on and off for about 15 years. I started as I am a keen gardener and when I eventually got my own garden I found I had a surplus of plants and seeds.  I collect seed from my plants and also enjoy propagating plants, but have only ever had very small urban gardens and wanted to expand!  I've lived near neglected areas which I have enjoyed revitalising with colour and plants for pollinators. I have mostly done this on my own but am hoping to find other like-minded guerrilla gardeners when we are out of lockdown and combine this with picking up litter in my local area. I would like to see all green spaces in cities protected and Councils prevented from building on them. I think local communities can do a lot if they get together to develop and cultivate neglected spaces. And I hope many people continue to use green spaces in the future as by using them we will show that we need them. I hope this reply is useful.  Wishing you the best of luck with your dissertation and future!

Thank you so much for you help!  :)
