Title: Greetings from Massachusetts!
Post by: jahra on May 05, 2008, 12:29:45 PM
 Greeting to everyone on the Japanese Garden forum from Massachusetts!

 We have a home at the base of a hill, so our property has quite a few large
 rocks and different levels. The former owner had a cherry tree and dogwood tree.

Last year, while raking leaves it hit us----we could make a Japanese Garden here!

Have slowly started with a small bridge and river stones (used marbles in blue color
 from Michael crafts for the water and bling ;D) )  Also, have Japanese lanterns in large and small
sizes.

 Now starting to seek some ground cover and hopefully build a moon gate.

Looking forward to hearing about everyones projects!

And, thanks to Don for such a neat forum.

Jahra, welcome to the forum.  You will find a great amount of information and knowledge here!   None from me, but there are some very knowledgeable people on the forum.

Jahra, welcome!  Ward is too modest :).  As you will see, this forum is a community of Japanese garden lovers working together to share, understand, and grow.

Yama, welcome north!

A red neck yankee is known locally as a "swamp yankee" which I believe had something to do with early temperance laws so that alcohol consumption was done out in the swamps.
