  2. Hi Sherry,

    I'm glad you have highlighted a garden in China. I've never really thought about that and seeing indigenous Chinese plants is most interesting.

    Have a nice weekend, Sherry.

  3. China is still a mystery. I'd like to see the bamboo garden and Chinese Gooseberry sounds neat.
