Spain: Blanca de la Torre's Chinese Hackberry tree and the exhibiton, Hybris at MUSAC, Spain

Dear Hiroshi,

I just wanted to thank you again for participating in Hybris exhibition. The show is being a total success, we are already getting a lot of press (unfortunately only national press, it´s hard to get international press here). Even on TV,  actually one of the best cultural programs in Spain, Metrópolis, is going to make a special program on the show. So I am really happy!

And people love your project. I also wanted to let you know that next week I will be in Miami teaching a workshop on eco-aesthetics. Link here

And I will speak about your project too. In the meantime I send you a pic of the other tree, the one planted in the garden ;)

Majulah Singapura - Tree Project in Singapore: Marianne Pereira's Hibau Camphor was adopted and now growing wonderfully

Hello Hiroshi

How are you doing these days. I notice that you are doing wonderful things, meeting exciting people and enjoying life to the hilt. Am happy for you.

I have finally managed to locate a friend to send me a photo of my prized hibaku. Hope you will like it nestled in the midst of Singapore's luxuriant flora. It is looking good don't you agree?

This friend is keen on growing hibaku too, would you be able to spare us some more seeds? Do you think this would be possible.

Looking forward to hearing from you.  

Wish you all the best

THE HAPPY END 15 - Alberto and another Hibaku Camphor in Argentina


This is another Hibaku tree, given by Julio Bernal and Semillas de Paz, to the neighborhood Barbarita, very close to the premises of SMC AR Tigre, where the other hibaku is planted. Around 1.000 meters, 10 blocks, more or less between them.

Both are camphor trees.

These photos are from hibaku camphor tree planted at the entrance square of the neighbourhood, it is already a mature seedling, and the site of planting is excellent, it has a 360 degree visual.

Also it was good to see many kids from the neighbourhood participating in the planting, may this planting be for them a moment of remembrance in the future

THE HAPPY END 14 - Alberto's Cherry Prunus, Argentina

Hiroshi / Julio

This past weekend we went to Baredero with my wife, this is a town around 145 km NE Buenos Aires, at the National Route 9 that goes to Rosario, Km 301

We have a strange winter now, this past week the average daylight temperature around 20 degrees celsius, so trees begun to flower.

The enclosed photo is from a cherry tree prunus type, quite like the 7 cherry trees we planted on august 6th 2016 at SMC Tigre.

Of course this cherry tree of Baradero is older, no less than 30 years, since the town of Baradero is the oldest of the province Buenos Aires, it was founded on 1615 by a Spanish conqueror, Hernandarias.


THE HAPPY END 13 - a poem by Amalia Isabel Daibes Pehuajo, Argentina

Seeds of Peace
coming from the life
- that always is able of
a little more -

Seeds of peace
that nest
the world
tnto a portal
that was of absence
and today are flying
in dreams of hope
within the loving whispers
of this August which consoles
and  which whispers into the ears
with new voices

Seeds of peace
above the silence of the souls
that today will rest in peace
