Konnichiwa, hello, from Boston
« on: March 02, 2011, 01:44:32 PM »
Hello -

It seems I will be another addition from the American Northeast; my interest isn't Japanese gardens per se, but rather in creating a garden with a focus on flowers appropriate for chabana (and enough organization and structure to keep everyone else happy).  I study tea (Urasenke) and classical Japanese martial arts (jo/iai).  The former provides me with a source of plants tolerant to the region (or rather, an instructor with a substantial garden and a willingness to share ...).

Hi, John.  Welcome to the forum! I'm looking forward to seeing more discussion on Chanoyu here.

Hi John.  Welcome to the forum.

I'm just a bit north of you....up in southern NH.  I'm a professional potter with strong connections into Japan (yes, I make chadogu  ;)) and pretty unskilled Iaidoka.
