JGarden Description:Breezewood is a five acre private garden owned by Thorne and Hannah Gould. It's located 1 mile west of Jarrettsville Pike. In recent years, the Journal of Japanese Gardening has been holding an annual Advanced Pruning Workshop at the beginning of May. 




Japan a great stone garden in the sea.
Echoes of hoes and weeding,
Centuries of leading hill-creeks down
To ditch and pool in fragile knee deep fields.
Leafy sunshine rustling on a man
Chipping a foot-square rough hinoki beam;
I thought I heard an axe chop in the woods
It broke the dream; and woke up dreaming on a train.
It must have been a thousand years ago
In some old mountain sawmill of Japan.
A horde of excess poets and unwed girls
And I that night prowled Tokyo like a bear
Tracking the human future
Of intelligence and despair.
