It's spring! Such a lovely time of year here, even if it is windy enough for you to lose a small child if you're not watching. This year makes me do yet another grandma moment when it comes to this city, so I hope you'll bear with me. It's just that while it would be easy to look around and think, "Well, sure, there are flowering trees, but it's not much amidst all this dirt and concrete" I remember our first years here when I don't remember seeing a single flower outside the botanical garden. I don't even remember seeing that many trees! So I'm loving this and applauding China's efforts at beautifying its urban areas.
