I think its Jananese links are a bit tenuous !!!

It looks just like minimalist style to me ;-)
I don't dislike it, in the right context and setting .....

Sticki...you could have a special Japanese corner perhaps? Japanese style works well in shady areas because a lot of the plants will tolerate some shade, and the bright gravel can really lift a dark dingy corner....

it would have been perfect for this garden with a back drop of trees, but you are right, thank you, i shall see if i can do a little corner! im looking at one right now!! hardly any sun most of the year though ~ but if i put the plants in pots they could have a little move round when needed??

that bowl with the water is beautiful

Yes, that bowl is the highlight of this photo isn't it. Gorgeous!

I have only just seen this photo, the bowl is indeed beautiful. I would like to try and re-create this design, any ideas where I could purchase a similar bowl ? ( Not designer) price though!

me..I had a good search when I saw it, and could find nothing for less than a few hundred pounds! Let me know if you find anything, happy hunting!

Thanks Karen, I will keep searching and let you know.

You may probably already know this site but I thought I would pass it on anyway. Prices still a little on the high side though :(
