I visited Sydney's Chinese garden recently. As it's in winter, trees lost a lot of leaves. This one is from the end of autumn. Full of leaves and sun coming through.


Chinese Garden of Friendship - Darling Harbour, Sydney NSW

@Chinese Garden of Friendship in Darling Harbour, Sydney

Chinese Garden (Chinese: 裕华园), also commonly known as Jurong Gardens, is a park in Jurong East, Singapore. Built in 1975 and designed by Prof. Yuen-chen Yu, an architect from Taiwan, the Chinese Garden’s concept is based on Chinese gardening art. The main characteristic is the integration of splendid architectural features with the natural environment. The Chinese Garden is modeled along the northern Chinese imperial style of architecture and landscaping


"READY TO BLOOM and regale you with my beauty"?

Although the petals look waxy... they are silky soft.

The Peony is indigenous to China, but was imported to Japan so early it is difficult to be certain when the transplantation occurred. It is a perennial plant with single flowers of white, red, hot pink or pale pink, which are born in late spring.

The peony was originally introduced as medicine. In fact, its ancient Japanese name "Ebisugusuri" literally means ‘medicine from China’. However, due to its beautiful and now mostly double blooms, in time, many decorative varieties were developed. In Japanese society, it was seen both as a medicine and a source of beauty.


Lead and enjoy a good life, do and say things that enrich... and do not forget to tell the people close to you, how much you love them!

wikipedia Junk (ship)


A junk is a Chinese sailboat design dating from ancient times and still in use today. Junks were developed during the Han Dynasty (206 BC–220 AD) and were used as ocean-going vessels as early as the 2nd century AD. They evolved in the later dynasties, and were built and used throughout Asia for extensive ocean voyages. They were found, and in lesser numbers are still found, throughout South-East Asia and India, but primarily in China, perhaps today most famously in Hong Kong. Also, found more broadly, is a growing number of modern recreational junk-rigged sailboats.

From Victoria Lavender Farm sign: "The most common of the Chinese pheasants, the Ringneck has been bred around the world and introduced into many countries for its beauty, flavor and for hunting. The Ringneck lays large clutches of eggs in the late spring and is hardy to many temperate climates."

I've been told these lovely, drooping blooms are Chinese Lanterns but they are quite different from the familiar.

Found a whole bunch of these growing down the street on a walk one day. I picked up some of the dried skeletons and brought them home. They are my favorite when they dry out like this. It gets its name from the calyx, the balloon-like, papery, red covering over the fruit, which resembles a Chinese paper lantern. It is also called winter cherry, strawberry tomato, and alkekengi.

I meant to put this large on black link up earlier, look SO much better!!

A skeletal chinese lantern from last year with the seed within.


The Chinese lantern plant is basically a herbaceous perennial that can live up to an age of three years. This unique plant has some great qualities apart from its looks. It has the ability to withstand extremely low temperatures exceeding even more than -40C.


Ironically the Chinese lantern plant is not native to the country of China. It was first discovered in Japan. It gets its name from the unique fruit that it produces. The fruit is shaped like a balloon and has a papery texture. It is red in color and known as the calyx. In terms of its appearances it looks exactly like the Chinese lantern craftwork.


Chinese Garden at the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens. Inspired by the centuries-old Chinese tradition of private gardens designed for scholarly pursuits, Liu Fang Yuan, or the Garden of Flowing Fragrance, combines the scenic beauty of nature with the expressiveness of literature to give deeper meaning to the landscape. A walk through its paths enriches the mind and spirit alike. The Huntington—with its renowned collections of art, rare books, manuscripts, and plants—was founded on this same philosophy by Henry E. Huntington in 1919.


The garden’s name, Liu Fang Yuan, has both literal and symbolic meanings. The words liu fang, or “flowing fragrance,” refer to the scent of flowers and trees, including the pine, lotus, plum, and other native Chinese plants found here. The Chinese poet Cao Zhi (192–232) first used the words in his “Rhapsody on the Luo River Goddess” to describe how the fragrance of flowers trailed in the goddess’s wake as she walked among the scented flora. And liu fang echoes the name of famed Ming dynasty painter Li Liufang (1575–1629), known for his refined landscapes.


The Beijing National Aquatics Center, also officially known as the National Aquatics Center, and colloquially known as the Water Cube, is an aquatics center that was built alongside Beijing National Stadium in the Olympic Green for the swimming competitions of the 2008 Summer Olympics. Despite its nickname, the building is not an actual cube, but a cuboid (a rectangular box). After the Olympics, the building underwent a 200 million Yuan revamp to turn half of its interior into a water park.


The Chinese were the first to put water in a container of cut flowers. So, while the Chinese were arranging flowers aesthetically in a container, the rest of the world was braiding garlands, making wreaths and flinging petals.. Japan grasped the vision of combining cut flowers, water and containers from China with such enthusiasm and inspiration that different schools of flower arrangement art emerged with masters who created philosophies and, design principles sprang into existence. The Japanese culture expanded flower arrangement into a meditative practice, which had its roots in beliefs and philosophies. Flower arrangement as well in China as in Japan became an art form that inspired contemplation and transcended decorative and devotional functions

Very end of autumn day.

I expected autumn colours but there wasn't much autumn here.

Air was cold and warm sunlight was really nice.

........The structure was imported piece by piece from Shanghai, and then reconstructed by craftsmen from China. There are 200 dragons on the wooden and marble structure with a mixture of stunning gold, red, green and the Chinese Royal colour of yellow. The archway stands at 15m high, which makes it the largest Chinese Arch outside China.


I was lucky to see this large sized swallowtail butterfly in broad daylight for the first time.

Chinese opera (Chinese: 戏曲/戲曲; Pinyin: xìqǔ) is a popular form of drama and musical theatre in China with roots going back as far as the third century CE. There are numerous regional branches of Chinese opera, of which the Beijing opera (Jingju) is one of the most notable.

A typical Chinese dwelling near the banks of the River Li in Guilin China. The city of Guilin is located in mainland China in the scenic Guangxi Province, which is about a two hours flight northwest of Hong Kong.


Note: In reading some of the comments left below, I wanted to correct the misunderstanding that this was was a slum dwelling. While conditions are quite spartan by western standards, I never felt that I was walking through an impoverished area. There was an active street market in front of this dwelling and along the entire street. Everyone we saw appeared very friendly and smiling as they went about their everyday shopping. The sweet elder lady whose photo is shown below was one such inhabitant.
