Tea and Flowers

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to each and every one of you!  The video I have chosen for this post is a short 2 minute one entitled "Chinese Traditional Erhu Music - Lei Qiang - Tea Harvest".  Enjoy!

The photos I am sharing today are ones that I took on a recent walk.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

  9. Hello Linda, Thank you for stopping by my blog.
    I enjoyed the music and pics very much. I find the coneflowers in our garden are attracting a lot of butterflies this year, which is very pleasing.

  15. Lovely music and pictures Linda. Although fairly different the music reminded me of Vangelis's 'Tao of Love', that too is a wonderful relaxing piece of music.
