The Year of the Dragon

Happy Chinese Dragon New Year!


Today is the first day of Chinese New Year. According to Chinese calendar and Zodiac, this is the Dragon year.

                                       
                                       

When Christmas comes, one will have the Christmas tree. For Chinese New Year, one will have the pussy willow. It's a popular plant for Chinese New Year. Just like Christmas tree, you can decorate it with various decorative items. It's very popular during Chinese New Year. My mom bought these from IKEA. (Yes, from a Swedish company who probably does not sell it in its own country).

This is the fluffy furry bud. When you touch it, it feels soft and er, fluffy.


                                       

My mom added the fake flower to the tip of the branches.

                                     

 Wishing everyone a prosperous year! Gong Xi Fa Chai!
