Hello from Frankfurt/Germany
« on: August 15, 2011, 09:58:55 AM »
Dear all,

i would like to introduce myself to the members of this forum.

I am 45 years old, male and married. Since over 15 years i am keeping Nishikigoi (Koi) and I have already build four ponds for them and I intend to travel to Japan before I become 50.
Japanese Gardens are the most suitable surrounding for such a Koi Pond and I have collected about Japanese Gardening and related topics over 300 books yet.

In 2003 I have designed my first Japanese Garden in front of my house and after having build the fourth pond in 2006 I did the same in the backyard but it has still to be improoved. Hopefully I will get a better impression here how to do so.

Regards

Andreas
