every year my mom will buy these dunno what it called... i think something like "lak mei" (err... wax plum blossom or something lah... hehehe) (baru i tahu... it's actually called "Pussy Willow" <---- what a dumb name!! hehehe!) i used to think they look horrible, ugly dark brown and furry silver ball after the caps come out... but this time my mom got some advice from from the florist... and look at them - new shoots have come out, even the flowers are growing bigger.... TIPS: change water everyday... if possible, use icy cold water! then the plant can tahan for more than 6 months.
and with these flowers... i would like to wish every bloggers happy and prosperous CNY!!! i'll definitely enjoy my holidays! :)
