Those of you wondering where The Frustrated Gardener has got to need not worry. I am alive and kicking in China, having just been to a magnificent Japanese teppanyaki restaurant with Taiwanese hosts. Consequently I am feeling thoroughly indulged and very international. There has been no let up in the schedule so, alas, no botanising, which grieves me greatly. Lacking any photographs of Chinese gardens to share with you, I am following tonight’s cuisine and reminding myself of the beautiful work of Japanese designer Kazuyuki Ishihara. His garden at Chelsea this year, entitled ‘Paradise on Earth’, demonstrated typical mastery of the art, capturing a perfect, tranquil scene in a space just a few metres square. I feel rested, peaceful and at one with nature just looking at it again. I hope you feel the same. よく眠る (I Sleep Well).
