Argentinian Japanese Gardens?

Yep.  The wife's sister who lives in England.  Recently went on holiday to Argentina.  The wife gave her the usual request:: 

 "Dave says will you tek (that's how I say it) some photos of any gardens."

Regular readers will remember her trip to Japan and the stunning photos.  Especially Hiroshima Peace Park.  I love Japanese gardens do you?  Did you see the excellent Monty Don's Japanese Gardens recently?  There's a clip of the CD on You Tube.  

Apparently the Chinese first originally designed these Oriental style gardens.  They were designed for people to take tea in.  It sound so quintessentially English doesn't it?
  
Jean's sister said the Buenos Aires gardens had not yet reached their Spring best.  But the feeling of peace was amazing.  The best time to visit Japanese gardens are in the spring and autumn. 

Every time I think of Japanese gardens.  I think of family holidays to Scarborough and the Japannese themed Peasholm Park.  There are two Japanese gardens I would like to visit in Ireland.  There are Several in the UK.  

Here's some photos.  I know a lot of you like looking at gardens. Thanks B.


Why not visit a Japanese garden near you?  Anybody thought of making one?  We have mountain and water (the bay) and bamboo and Azaleas and Hydrangeas.. So I suppose all we need is a little billy goat gruff style of bridge and a tea room.  Not that I drink tea, except for herbal one's like Turmeric and my own homemade nettle tea. I like black coffee in a cafetiere.

  1. I have always thought the Japanese had the edge on garden designs and I really wish I could see one in real life. Pictures are great but I imagine actually being in one of those gardens would be an absolute delight.

    Snap, I only drink herbal teas! I love 'em.

  3. Never heard of Hard Nutz but like their music.
    I remember the peace of an old English churchyard and the green grass.

  4. Hi LA. I think the band was called Nutz. They later changed it to More. An old friend who is no longer alive always played this record every night. It started playing in my mental jukebox when I thought of black coffee. Its a Bob Dylan cover. But a lot more Heavy. Thanks!

  5. I remember the Japanese garden photos here last time. They were fabulous. Did you see the programme about Japanese art recently when they had this elderly male flower arranger? It is all about the bits you take away to form gaps not the bits you leave. He was amazing.

  8. Yes, I am missing him. I used to have his email address but lost it along with many others last year when my laptop caught fire and I beat it out with a shovel.

  9. I have his email address Rachel. Do you want me to contact him for you? The laptop fire experience must have been frightening? I once lost a couple of books I had been writing and files too when my computer gave up the ghost. Very annoying.

  10. The laptop started smoking and I can't remember what happened next, there was a short inside it I think. I took the battery out I think but the casing had already melted and the screen had gone funny so in the end I bashed it with a shovel to make sure the hard drive was unreadable and left it in the garden until I was sure it had stopped burning. They are more dangerous than people think. It is a long time for Gwil not to comment so you might say I was wondering if he is alright and I have lost his email address.

    I will email Gwil and ask him to contact you. Wet and windy here today.
