Flower Power

Beautiful flower market in Seoul

Yangjae Flower Market in Seoul is one of the largest in Korea. It is divided into several different zones, from whole sale to retail, it also has auction house and a whole floor of silk flowers, ribbons and other flower arranging items

I used to have a teapot like this and used to love
the fllowering tea bulbs

Update from my Son

Made it out of Reno and tested out our new tent at 10,000ft with snow and heavy winds. She held up nicely, although an investment in some down sleeping bags would've made for warmer toes. Off to Mt. Whitney and a few nights in Death Valley.

`*.¸.*♥ღϠ₡ღ゚ The five W’s of life: Who you are is what makes you special. Do not change for anyone. What lies ahead will always be a mystery. Do not be afraid to explore. When life pushes you over, push back harder. Where there are choices to make, make the one you won’t regret. Why things happen will never be certain. Take it in stride and move forward.

If flowers can teach themselves how to bloom
after winter passes, so can you.

Vagrant Pansies

They are all in the lily-bed
cuddled close together
Purple, yellow cap and the little baby blue.
How they ever got there you must ask the April weather.
The morning and the evening winds
the sunshine and the dew

Thanks to my sweet friend Carolyn for this verse.  Please visit her lovely blog

Love you sweet friend

After the long and brutal winter we had 

we all welcome the beauty of spring
sunshine and the colour therapy of flowers.
Flowers are food for our souls

Memories of my old Grade School Dr. H. D. Taylor on Campbell
A thousand wonderful moments shared come to mind

Evening calls
the sweet aroma of pinion wood
drifts through the air
as the magical feel of twilight
descends like a mist
And just for a moment
so brief you hardly notice
time stops
And in this moment
like an old photo in
a keepsake album
we're together
with no worries no tears
no aches no pains
no obligations
to attend to
just the two of us
while time stands still
~ poem "While Time Stands Still" by Michael Traveler, author of Michael Traveler, author of Postcards from the Past 
"A great attitude becomes a great mood. A great mood becomes a great day. A great day becomes a great year. A great year becomes a great life."


  1. Hi Jeanne,

    Lovely post with all your gorgeous flowers.
    You must be so happy to have spring there and to say goodbye to winter.
    Happy week

  2. Hello dear Jeanne
    This is such a lovely floral post welcoming Spring.
    One of my embroidery friends has a teapot like this that she bought in China and we've had the 'flower' tea too - so lovely to look at.
    I so love your smiling pansies and I'm going to plant some next weekend!
    Flowers are indeed food for my soul!
