Peach Blossoms

Happy the Year of the Ox! The Year of the Rat has been truly horrendous, so hopefully with the Ox, traditionally associated with patience and hard work, we’re going to have a better year. I have to admit, the start is less than auspicious – we’re still in lockdown mode (there is no official lockdown in our country; they just lock down individual streets and neighborhoods where cases have been found, but my family decides we’d rather be safe than sorry, so we’re celebrating the Lunar New Year at home). Still, we can hope, right?

This outfit is from several weeks ago, but it looks like a peach tree in blossom, our traditional New Year decoration, so I thought it would be appropriate.
