Happy Chinese New Year

祝大家新年快乐, 萬事如意, 身体健康!  Today is the start of the Chinese New Year of the snake. Most families in China will be spending time together enjoying the festivities, including watching the Spring Festival show on CCTV. We are looking forward to the show as well since a local station rebroadcasts it. This time of the year in Northern California actually feels like spring. Winter months have brought much welcomed rain. Everywhere is green and lush. Some fallen leaves are still on the ground. This may be bit of an odd post, but I just feel like sharing pictures I took around the yard today. These were taken with a standard lens, so not as sharp as a macro lens.

    may good fortune greet everyone here; let us hope for a more genuine and trustworthy friendship between China and the United States and/or the West.

    Gorgeous pictures. Flowers have a strong symbolism in Lunar New Year celebrations, especially with the colors.My living room bouquet is golden chrysanthemum, pink tiger lilies, & red berries (can’t remember the name)….all to represent `Huat, Huat, Huat!’ (Minnan for 发发发。。lol!)

    For those who believe in such things, Year of Water Snake is good for China, not so good for US of A…according to soothsayers, but then it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this one out. Not so hunky-dory for those born under Snake sign, too. Xi Jinping is a Snake-born leader – but his good `bazi’ (八字)help him to dodge not-so-fortuitous stars. Happy New Year!
