Since I am not gardening recently, I hope that you will appreciate some spring blossoms from China…

The landscape is changing quickly.

I noticed that the blooms are disappearing very quickly.

We were lucky to be able to see the blooms along the Great Wall.

The wall that goes on and on and on… the landscape seems to be dotted with white cotton puff.

Please visit my other blog for more photos taken in China, plus recent sketches.

Happy Weekend.

Gorgeous photos and artwork! I've been to the Great Wall - back in 2002. It was one of the most powerful experiences of my life. I love how you captured it here.

Hello Evelyn!

I don't know that China also have beautiful Spring blossoms!

Thanks for sharing these spectacular shots from different angles, from its close ups to its scenenic views from afar.

I have the strong urge want to revisit Beijing to witness the charm of Spring blossoms. The last time I visit Beijing was in Summer, that's really hot...and i didn't see any blossoms at all...

I like the phrase "cotton puff" that you creatively used here.
The white spring blossoms truly accentuate and add beauty to the Great War, no wonder every years, there see increase of people travelling to China.

I love that last picture of the wall. What a beautiful historic place. It looks especially lovely with the cherry blossoms.
