Peach Blossoms

Arthur poses in front of the peach blossoms I bought yesterday.

Living downtown, I have a greater awareness of Chinese New Year. These flowers symbolize growth, prosperity, long life and romance. According to tradition, "they're particularly popular with single people who decorate with them in hopes of finding love in the coming year."

Woo hoo!

I love all the spring flowers around new year. Happy Chinese New Year!

we like to call it "lunar new year" since it's celebrated elsewhere, not just in china! :-)
