Stunning Japanese Garden – Chelsea Flower Show 2014

I was so excited to visit the Chelsea Flower Show this year, especially to see Mr. Ishihara’s Garden called “Togenkyo“, which won the Gold Medal and the best Artisan Garden Prize at the show.
Luckily, Mr. Ishihara was in front of his garden when I visited and I was very excited to say “Congratulations” to him! Ha ha, he was friendly and kindly took a picture with me :)

As a Japanese living in the UK, this beautiful Artisan Garden, gave me great nostalgic feelings as it instantly reminds me of home. It was a powerful healing experience.
I think his spirit really comes through his work and this is probably one of the reasons why he has been a Gold Medallist in the gardening world :)
