Instead of flowers, we like to plant vegetables such as lettuces, swiss chards, tomatoes, peppers and green onions—something edible. I’ve been harvesting and eating our home grown lettuces, swiss chards, and green onions. the freshness of vegetables delights you and they are yummy. Other vegetables will be blooming soon.

   I have no garden, but I have a yard in front of my house. Here all we have the same yard in front of house where you can do anything you want including planting kinds of flowers or vegetables in hometown. Now it only has a balcony in tall buildings where only can plant small flowers or vegetables.

  I only have daffadillies in flowerpot about bulbs, not many. But because I don’t take good care of it , it died before it grew new bulbs. So almost I buy it every year. Isn’t it a waste?

  I have no specially favorite flowers. But I know many flowers blooming in springtime , such as winter jasmine flower, sakura, peach blossom and so on.  After spring festival,  I will see the  winter jasmine flower which is small yellow flowers is firstly open. Even though, the weather is still very cold. But when you see them, you will feel excited.  You know, the spring is coming.
