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. 




Hello John,
You'll find that this forum's members will be interested in hearing about your interests in flowers and tea. I'm always learning new things from others here. It's a great environment to share ideas and interests.
You have a nice looking garden. Thanks for sharing it with us.
