    How nice these photos are !

    Really have no idea what may the spring choose , but I will pick the mandarin oranges and Gomphrena globosa ( what a long name > v < ) for me !

    I love the mandarin orange juice (yum) <– very yummy reason ^ ^ , and about the "purple balls", I didn't know they are some lucky flowers for new year, people at my place prefer apricot blossom and mandarin oranges for the new year! However, I have a small field of these "purple balls" in my garden ^ – ^ they are strong in living , love the sunshine and can keep their color for a long long time after being dried 🙂

      Sydney Fong responded:
      February 3, 2013 at 2:02 pm

      Yes, I like mandarin orange too! In fact I had two last night !
      Yin yin, thanks for sharing so much wonderful story about yourself!
      I had a glance of your Blog, is truly a beautiful Blog I can feel by the first impression!
      And I believe we are working in the same garden, haha!
      Have a peaceful weekend! I see you then! Cheers!

        ^ – ^ You are more than welcome, Sydney ! My family haven’t buy any lucky trees or flowers for the coming holiday yet , the flowers market is so down this year, many plants stand lonely ,many sellers keep waiting in their blues, hope everything will be brighter soon !

        Thanks for your kind compliment ^ v ^ feel free to drop by and have some tea anytime you like.

        haha , any reason for that ?

    Hi Sydney, I have been admiring your photographs for some time now, but my browser would not allow me to leave “likes” or comments – I finally switched browsers, hooray!! I was so happy to see this post about the Chinese New Year. When we lived in California I loved to go to Chinese New Year in San Francisco. I was born in the Year of the Monkey and I was able to celebrate that year in style! I will have a post on February 10 about CNY. Beautiful flowers, thanks for brightening my day!

      O, you are monkey? In that case I would like to share with you a joke.
      Do you know what fruit can keep a person slim?
      Answer: Banana.
      Reason being is that, have you ever seen a fat monkey?
      Gege, Julia! I thank you spending time on my Blog which I didn’t (not only yours)!
      And thanks for sharing your wonderful feeling about CNY ! Let’s look forward and cheers!

    I tried to cmt on another entry of yours, but failed , wonder what’s wrong with WP > – <
    haha , it's ok , just take your time ^ – ^
    Nope , I'am a chinese vietnamese girl!

      Sydney Fong responded:
      February 4, 2013 at 9:11 am

      Is because you looks like a Singaporean in the picture.
      Hi! nice to meet you!
      Do you celebrate CNY in Vietnam?

        yinyin said:
        February 4, 2013 at 12:24 pm

        This is the first time someone tell me that I look like an Singaporean, sounds nice ^ – ^ people in my place usually think that I am a Japanese , and when I was in Thailand , a traveler from Chinese thought I was lost from her group and tried to show me the way back – that was very kind of her though ^ – ^

        yup ^ – ^ we are in our preparation, CNY is also the traditional new year here ,people hung on many flowers and lights along the streets, and in a family size 🙂 my dad added many blessing words (in black / on red paper) everywhere =)

        Sydney Fong responded:
        February 4, 2013 at 1:28 pm

        You looks like many other races, it means you are qualify to be a secret agent! 🙂
        So nice to hear about your country and family during this CNY season!
        I wish you a fruitful year in collecting red packet! Cheers!
