What is there about/ a stone wall that brings out/ the child in me? Modern Japanese Senryu Poem (17 syllables or less in 3 lines) EKPHRASIS: From the Greek word ek (out of) and phrasis (speech or expression) is a form that takes its inspiration from visual art: an easy form of poetry, because there aren't any set rules as to syllable count or rhyme scheme.

Jizo or Ojizo-sama is one of most beloved deities in Japan. Often, Jizo is represented as a monk with a shaved head and a simple robe, but since he is the guardian of children, sometimes Jizo is represented chibi 「ちび」 (meaning a short person or small child), like in this photo from the Japanese Garden of the Hasedera Temple, Kamakura.

Persian shield. Persian Shield is known botanically as Strobilanthes dyerianus. It is native to Burma and has 8-inch-long leaves that are iridescent in shades of purple, lilac and pink, with purple-maroon on the undersides. If those colors aren't awesome enough, the foliage looks like it has a light coat of silver electroplated to it. Although newly in fashion. the plant has been used in gardens since Victorian times.
I love this! For the first day of spring. Birds will take a string (or multiples) and weave them into their nests!!!

Paperbark Cherry for winter interest. Wow! Planted mostly for it's stunning bark color, this tree has clusters of tiny white flowers that bloom in the spring. Green leaves turn yellow in the fall. The tree grows 20-30' tall and wide and requires full sun. It is susceptible to disease and pests so it should be planted as a short-lived tree. Zones 5-8
