    1. I know, the first two pictures don't look very oriental. I thought it was interesting that there were windmills in China. I didn't expect to see them.

  6. Beautiful gardens. I have to admit, though, cleaning dog vomit was pretty intriguing too. Thanks for the following at Creating Wordlenik.
