QUOTE OF THE DAY


I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose, I would always greet it in a garden ~ Ruth Stout

PS: Another beautiful spring day in Canberra.

Pictures of flowers on your blog - are they yours?

FAMILY FIRST said...

Yeah, same question. Wanted to ask if these are from your garden? Lovely lah.

Did you grow these? WOW

Anyway, just saw that you are reading Su Tong's Raise the Red Lantern, that is one of my all time favourite books and I liked the movie too!

Thank you anon, Joanna and ToH...yes the flowers are from my garden.

FYI, If the pictures have 'myhouseholdcapers' on them, majority of the pictures are from my garden and home. Having said that, I have taken pictures of my neighbour's flowers (with their permission, of course) and from nature strips. I will put them up shortly.

Pictures with no reference to 'myhouseholdcapers' are taken from free sites on the net with a link back to the original posts or owners.

Hi ToH

I saw the movie years ago and I loved it, especially Gong Li. I have been wanting to read the book for a long time and I was so excited when I recently found it...so yes, it now one of my favourites!

hey again VG, yup, I still remember the scenes from the movie, I think I have to rewatch it! LOL, I still remember the scene where she asked for vegetables with beancurd very vividly..the cinematography in the movie was excellent!

I agree ToH...the movie is great and isn't Gong Li just gorgeous???
