Kabota Gardens, Seattle
Nice winding nature place to walk. Lots of people there to enjoy it.
Met Maya and her mother and David gardener ( photographer).
It was a nice day.
The garden needs an architect, Japanese masterful gardener, maybe a dozen of them.
It really needs a lot of work.
The ponds are very stagnant.
The growth is gone wild and there's too much.
I don't know how they'll manage to
Get it looking cultivated.
But I hope they do.
I think Kiku would make a very nice contribution.
Maybe some philanthropist will do any funds to get this garden looking like a real Japanese garden.
What a treasure that would be.
A Kiku greenhouse maybe?
I'd work there.
This year coming up we'll
Have Kiku once again.
Kings mums sold their business in Oregon to Brian in Tulsa. So next year I can order Kiku starts again.
Still no greenhouse here to grow them in. They're delicate. I manage even though it's cool here for them to grow outdoors. But if I could do some work in a greenhouse I think I'd get an interesting result. The advantage here is blooms last much longer. The problem is getting enough nutrition in them and water for them to grow large and fast.
Anyway Kings will be at the same site,
I think that's it.
America is a step closer to being saved!!
It's the beautiful, sensitive things that matter. For that's cultivated!!
Integrity is cultivated.
A few focused scenes at Kubotas Garden.
In Japan leaves appear placed artfully on the pathways. I imagine somehow if we each turned our sensibilities inward to the true nature of ourselves, leaves would somehow fall perfectly
Randomly in perfect design.
These are my Pacific Giant ( midget) pumpkins.
They grew from seed that didn't sprout last year.
An enormous vine. Deer ate the blooms.
But I got 4 beautiful pumpkins.
