Here are some flowers spotted along the Great Wall.

I love these pure white blooms.

I wonder what colour the bloom will be…

We stopped often to enjoy the view, and to take some photos. But we also stopped because we ran out of breath. It was a 3 hour climb. Click here for more photos of the Great Wall in my other blog.

From my friend’s garden

We went to the Great Wall with a friend. Before we left, I managed to take a few photos in her garden.

Lucky you to have been to the Great Wall! Three hours is a long climb, though!

I was fortunate to have visited the Great Wall, but it was in January and there were no flowers blooming then. Your pictures are beautiful. I hope you had a great time!
