Happy Chinese New Year - Gong Xi Fa Cai!

It's the year of the rooster (sounds better than chicken, if you ask me) and we're seeing cute little stuffed birds pop up everywhere in anticipation of the celebrations coming up next week.
This big peach blossom tree showed up in my building lobby a few days ago.  It's so funny looking because there are no leaves, just flowers.  But these trees are prized for Chinese New Year festivities and one this size is undoubtedly very expensive.  Peach blossoms symbolize good fortune, growth, romance, prosperity, long life... all the good things.
