  2. Already Wednesday at your place. I have been to china once and the day the other took a trip to the summer palace in Beijing i was sick...

    Amarylis flower lovely and the birds to.

    Boys may be sweetbut they are not made of sugar and won't melt in the rain. - I agree totally with you, but It did rain a little but no storm did come.

  3. Both these posts are just beautiful. China is another land of earthquakes probably worse than California.

  11. I love this shot and the other photos from My World...

    The Summer Palace is magnificent. I remember scaling the walls one summer when I lived in China and sleeping over in the gardens... that was way back in the 80s.

  12. A think this is a delightful view...I missed your last post.. I must have visited you early yesterday as the post was not up.

    Thank you for visiting me on Wiggers World today and commenting on my 'Raindrops' you mentioned I should try for one in free fall... when I read that I thought 'if only' but on closer inspection of my Swan pictures on my other blog today... have a look at the last picture.... it might not be a raindrop... but.. ha! I couldn't believe my luck. ;O)

    My daily blogs show Raindrops and Swans
