A few days ago, I still saw you flying around and fluttering near my window pane.
I walked past and almost stepped on you.
How can something be so alive and now dead as a doornail.
I know Winter is near.
Maybe, I will see you again in Spring.

Sometimes, one post lead to another.
My yesterday post showed a bird among the cherry blossoms.
It was early Spring and the buds of Kapok have not even bloomed.
Picture the credit of my calligraphy classmate Mr. Chung Kwok Fan.
I fully understand even the original picture is very difficult to be taken, as this requires a lot of skill and patience.
4 February is Li Chun – the start of the season of Spring in the Chinese Lunar calendar.
A lot of people might not know that, actually our Lunar New Year starts on Li Chun Day or Lunar New Year will only be considered as Officially Arrived after Li Chun Day.
Li Chun Day is a day to mark the start of a New Lunar Year and also, to mark the Arrival of the Spring Season.
Usually after Li Chun Day, most of the plants will start to grow again, snowing will slowly cease and accumulated ice will start to melt etc.
One sign of Spring is the blossoming of flowers. Here are some peach blossoms seen at night. Night is about to phase out and turn into day. What a wonderful sight! PS Picture taken by my classmate YM Chan in Japan.
Think I have to conclude my series of this week’s WPC with this post.
Spring connotes the idea of life, new life, freshness and joy.
While there, we felt like we were walking in Eden.
So, we felt like we were in a world of our own – our Eden :-)
Geneva is not just about the lake and the fountain. Although the lake, the boats and the swans there are just lovely.
To me, they are just soothing to the eyes!
This week’s WPC is Spring.
This image was taken just a couple of days ago on the slope side.
The trees have turned yellow with some tiny flowers.
Spring has definitely arrived!
PS The trees are Acacia Confusa. In this part of the world, the common species is Formosa Acacia.
