Qing Ming festival. 

Qing Ming festival is also known as Tomb sweeping festival and falls under the 24 solar terms as clear and bright, the start of good weather. This festival corrolates to the cherry blossom season in China and is a national holiday that people take time to spend with family, offer goods to their ancestors and to view the fragile cherry blossoms before the rain and wind makes them fall. Caryn and I spent this three day weekend at the best spot to view them, called Turtle head park. (the park is on a penninsula that juts out into Tai lake).

lovely park and lovely day (even if it was hotter than we planned)

Happy spring to you all!

lots of love
