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

Micho Horikawa's Persimmon Update

昨年鉢植えから地面に下ろした柿の木です。赤く紅葉しない間に散り始めました。一年かけて根が張ったはずなので、来年は大きく伸びてくれるのではと念じています。
