An Ancient Spring

21 Apr


Spring is beginning at the ancient Yuyuan Gardens in Shanghai. This lovely flower is growing atop some of the old roof tiles of the garden.

Life in China ~ Blossoms of Spring

21 Mar

Gave some exams near the Campus Library  and got this treat 🙂 Green and Pink, my favorite colors! I just love the beauty of the flowering season. And here in China, it’ll last until well into the fall!

Blue of the Sea

Spring is here! 

The cherry trees are blooming, the dogwoods flowering, and the sun is sharing its warmth. 

Today it was so nice, I stopped at the “Honey Drink” shop and picked up a “blue drink.” They called it a “lan seng” or that’s what it sounded like. 🙂

It’s a mixture of syrup/flavoring, oranges, lemon / lime, and ice. Taste’s like a blue Popsicle! 

The shop is one of many “student-owned” businesses here on campus. They have an Incubation Center and a focus on Entrepreneurship, so the school encourages students to start up their own businesses. If you get a chance to visit Xinzheng, let me know and I’ll treat you!

Happy Spring!

Spring in Xinzheng

21 Mar

Spring is arriving in Xinzheng!  I went for a walk in the river park with some friends yesterday.  We were hunting for fishies and we caught some!  Harry was out in the middle of one of the koi ponds balancing on the pots, it’s a miracle we didn’t end up with a soaked, stinky Harry 🙂  the trees were flowering, the weÖather was lovely, what a great day!


Fashion Dreams: Oscar de la Renta Embellished Gown

Oscar de la Renta Embellished Floral Brocade Gown 

via “Moda Operandi”

Oscar de la Renta Embellished Floral Brocade Gown found on Polyvore

Almost everything about this gown speaks to me ~ the simple neckline and sleeves, the colors and patterns, the length.  I am not a huge fan of the colorless shoulder straps ~ perhaps a pink or light green outline as opposed to the “Black and White” fading into “Color” look?  Still, this would be amazing for a spring formal event.  Lovely and elegant, but vibrant and bright.
