Today I received flowers from Europe, UK and the USA –they were on the posts of bloggers I follow. Spring blooms at the edge of winter; that is a gift. That they took time to photograph, select, edit and share, is also a gift. Thank you.
In return I photographed a battered old fan painted with my favourite flower, the peony. Note that the insect on the blooms was added by another artist, and there are two lines of miniature Chinese calligraphy on it. :)
