Just a pity it is going to be in Japan…………..lol
Have just spent 5 hours working with a Japanese film company, since being accepted by the Yellow Book (NGS) we were approached by this film company who wanted to film our garden, apparently English gardens are very popular in Japan, how unusual is that? so our garden fitted their criteria………they came to see us last Saturday and spent 2 hours looking at and talking about the possibility of using our garden, all this was done through an interpreter a charming young lady.
The TV program will concentrate on the NGS and how we felt being accepted in to the scheme, and why we wanted to join in the first place……… we will have a DVD of our garden when the crew have finished filming in the country.
Here are a few shots of the producer, the camera man, the sound engineer and Erica the interpreter.


They filmed the garden from every angle, even standing on the roof of their van in our neighbours drive!!!! we were asked numerous questions regarding the work we had done over the years, even photographing our old before and after pictures of the garden, luckily we did well with the shooting and did not have to repeat the shots…….
This is the crew in the garden…….


All in all it has been a most exciting day, the weather was beautiful so the garden looked at its best, the roses were all in bloom, perfect.
