Spring Time, Gardening Time (1)

Finally, we have our spring back! I can’t wait to do some gardening for my small sweet garden. I had a lot of plan, but the pity thing is my garden isn’t big enough for my thoughts. 🙂 Not everybody can have big garden, but it doesn’t mean we can have fun to visit those beautiful garden around the world. Which country you will choose first?

For me, the first country I might choose is Japan. Because the cherry blossoms is whispering ” the spring is here, the spring is here”. Imaging when you are walking under the cherry trees and let pink and white blossom petals rain surround you, let the blossom petals drop on your hand, on the shoulder, or your hair…


When you are tired, take a break, have a cup of tea, and enjoy the flowing steam, wooden bridge, oriental tower, green trees and colourful flowers…
