Chinese New Year

I have taken a few “Chinese New Year” related photos during recent strolls. At this time of year noisy firecrackers are set off to chase away bad spirits (leaving the pavements covered in red paper). Shrines get fresh floral garlands, and food offerings are often set out in front of Chinese businesses. Also, many people tie a bunch of flowers (usually orchids) onto the front of their car, and shop fronts get decorated with Chinese figures, lanterns, and red paper.

For those wishing to view dragons – please see my 14 Dec posting “Walking with Dragons”. Just to tempt you I have inserted one of them below.

Wild Things 82

I have really been enjoying this photo journey, and thought you might, too!

This is the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, the Year of the Dragon, so I wish my reader(s) “Gong Xi Fa Cai”. I think that my lizards look a bit like small dragons.

There are lots of wild flowers to be seen at present, and I had a problem deciding which flowers to include here. I often find the insects enjoying their breakfasts. This morning both a jumping spider and a praying mantis were eating when I arrived with my camera.
