I have successfully defended my doctoral thesis. I will be given the degree on Sept. 19.
A new paper is published, so the list of papers is updated.
We are cataloging what we have on our campus in Matsudo this year, and am responsible for the ornametal plants. We are working toward making this campus into a field museum. I have started recording what are here and noting what are in bloom every other week or so. I am making a blooming calendar, at the moment only in Japanese, but eventually would like to write the English version (and the Spanish version, for that matter).
