christina abramowski's Ginkgo Photos from Apr 24, 2015

Hi Hiroshi!!!

Here are two pictures I took today! This first tree has been under a grow light! It was just a stem for over 1 1/2 years!!!!! Now it is BEAUTIFUL!
So now you can tell people that, yes! the gingko trees are deciduous and lose their leaves every fall.......only to come back in the spring with enough light!
This second tree you sent me a seed last year that was sprouted and it grew about 4 leaves and in the fall all the leaves fell off. But today you can see that it is sprouting in just natural daylight! Both trees are in the same window, but the first is under the grow light! I am sooooo excited and wanted you to see my trees!
Love. Peace. Gratitude. Kindness.

本日は憲法記念日です。我が家の庭に植えられているNY在住の砂入博史さんのTree Projectの広島被爆柿の木の子孫です。種をいただいて芽を出したのは2009の7月です。鉢から庭に根付かせて3年目です。瑞々しい葉を見せています。大きく育ってほしいです。

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
