Miyakowasure


I like these pretty flowers very much. We call them MIYAKO WASURE in Japanese. I don't know the English name. Aster? Gymnaster? Miyamayomena? Anyway, these lovely petite flowers look fragile but they are strong, long lasting and grow anywhere. The meaning of the name is that they make you forget the big city. Interesting, huh?

Thank you for the Japanese lesson, M. My mommy teaches me things like that, so I like them too. Yes, they are asters, more specifically callistephus or "China Aster". They are my mommy's favorite flower. I think I like the name "forget the big city" better.

You always look so beautiful when surrounded by the flowers. By the way, I was very happy to see that you still have your toy from NYC. It was fun to read Kishiko's blog about her trip to visit us. It made me very nostalgic. I can't wait for another visit and we are still making our plans to visit Sapporo. We love you and miss you!
