Lunar Holiday 06: Peach BlossomsPosted: February 26, 2015
This outfit is a big ole pile of nothing, but I took photos of it anyway, because my sweatshirt matches the peach blossoms in our garden almost exactly.
In Northern Vietnam, a branch of peach blossoms is an essential part of the Lunar New Year decoration (in the South, where it’s too hot for peach trees, they prefer the yellow-flowered ochna plants), and there are whole villages of peach tree growers who spend the entire year cultivating and grooming their trees to make sure they blossom at the right time. This year has been warmer than usual, and most of the blossoms already faded before the New Year even began. Our tree, though, managed to hold off for some reason (we didn’t take care of it in any special way!) so we still had lovely peach blossoms for the Lunar New Year.
