How lovely DD. I can see that area looking really good come the summer. What do you think about a small water feature in this space? It would add to the tranquility - Really nice!!!

Driad I might just do that......thanks Lulu and Michaella.
Poppy yes I thought one of those bamboo stick things would go well there, great ideas eh?
Paul that is my beautiful Fatshedera it is looking a little bit sick moved it at the wrong time, so it is sulking at the moment, if you look to the left I have another planted but it is just the green variety, I have a feeling this area is going to be a lot larger than I anticipated lol

The japanese corner is looking pretty already. I can just imagine the acers in there too. Love the lantern.

HB thanks, San it is rather bare at the moment, will no doubt change the whole thing again in a couple of months time lol

I keep going back to this photo and am visualising a lovely red acer behind the buddha like an umberella. Oh! I just HAVE to do something like this myself.Will you stop egging me on. I can't afford it!!!!!

HB I could see that too, if you do decide on making a Japanese area, invest in a larger Buddha, I think you have more room in your garden............me egging you on, now would I lol

Well. Yes you would is the answer to that one.....I have been googling Buddhas and have thrown lots of (not too veiled) hints of what I want from T and the children........I liked the look of the carved wood ones but don't know how one would fare in the garden in all weathers. I already have a cast iron pagoda tea light that would look good hanging from a branch of an acer or from a lamp holder.... Oh! I am running away with this idea again.........
