Hiroshima: Yuso Takesawa's Hibaku Chinese Parasol tree - a season for growing leaves again!




砂入さま

お元気ですか。桜も終り、さつき、つつじの季節です。
本日の広島は、雨にともなう霧が発生して、広島空港はほぼ全便欠航です。
しばらくNYに伺っていません。

Portland, Oregon: Aija Kanbergs's Hibaku Platanus, Japanese Plane tree has grown to be a beautiful tree!


 


Hi, Hiroshi - somehow I missed all the opportunities for including my tree (a Japanese plane tree) in exhibits/photos.  I got it in early 2011 at the Portland Japanese Garden.  Here are some photos of its life so far.

We get a lot of rain here, and the front yard faces south.  Also, I think the tree is among friends.  Behind it there is a Chinese dogwood, Cornus kousa, and there is a diversity of wildflowers, bees, and other insects.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to participate in this important project.

In peace, Aija Kanbergs
Portland, Oregon
