Hiroshima, Japan: Yuso Takesawa's newly sprouted Chinese Parasol Tree

「寒さを嫌う青桐にはいいのですが、人間にとってはこの暑さ、湿度の高さは不快指数、急上昇です。昨日、撮ったNPO法人セトラひろしまにおいてある青桐二世の苗木です。秋になったら、地下上を試みます。今度は、倒されたり、引き抜かれたりしないよう、万全を期すつもりです。種から育てている青桐は我が家のベランダですこしづつ大きくなっています。種から育てるのは、子供を育てているようで夢がありますね。」

It is OK since Chinese Parasol trees don't like coldness, but the humidity is so high here in Hiroshima. It is not good for us!! The other day, I took some pictures of the second generation of Hibaku Parasol seedlings at NPO Cetra Hiroshima where they are at. In fall, we will replant it on the ground and this time, we will try hard so no one will pull it out of the ground. The ones we sprouted from seeds are in our balcony and they are growing little by little. Growing trees from seeds is like having and seeing kids grow up. It gives us a dream and hope."
