Someone told me it is a native dogwood that blooms in my garden.
White flowers on bare branches spread like clouds in my garden.
Sometimes I wonder about mother, who’s never visited me in America:
Would she plant azalea, zinnia, cosmos, or her favorite rose, in my garden?
I used to dress up in a blue yukata with a big yellow dragonfly print for Matsuri.
I think of Thomas when the Japanese cherry blossom blooms in my garden.
Forsythia, magnolia, hydrangea, camellia, Dahlia, and Forget me not,
when I moved out from Ohio, all I missed was the flowers in my garden.
Butterfly, rabbit, chipmunk, goldfinch, hummingbird. I heard
bluebird is the symbol of happiness. I have bluebirds too in my garden.
Shanhu, you are a master gardener. I converse with mother in the garden.
