I really love my garden and your right, Zvone, the best of having it is that you don't stop enjoying it, doesn't matter if one is picking weeds, or pruning, or just removing fall leaves... I enjoy it so much! It's nice to find a place where people value the work and beauty of a Japanese garden... our house is in a small village near by Santiago de compostela and people around here are farmers so they have a different look of what a garden can be... you can't imagine the look on their faces when they saw the huge truck that came with the all the rocks!!! For a couple of moths I had everyday some neighbor bringing me grapes, or eggs or fruit only to check what the hell was I doing in my front yard After it was finnish they came to see it and told me that it was beautiful, but still some tell me that for them it make no sense to have a Japanese garden in Galicia Regards!

My neighbors are already norwegian older generation can not understand why I want to grow bent and crooked Pine, when everybody wants straight, why breed moss, when everyone kill him, why seek truck to transport heavy stone, when they all want the stones away from the garden ..... But I do not give much weight to the opinions neighbor .... I live my life in my garden and enjoying even the hard work and it is the essence of exactly how you say .......Very nice work on your garden and beautiful video!! Keep up the great work and if you have a lot of criticism, build bamboo fences higher Regards from NorwayAles
