The Year of the Rabbit

 Last week I wanted to do a little celebrating of the Chinese New Year.
A walk through Lan Su Chinese Gardens was just what I had in mind.
The touches of the red lanterns just sang to my heart.
But this little sweetie made my heart fly.
She was celebrating with a walk in the garden with her mom and
graciously agreed to pose for a picture.
I think she is the perfect little bunny to celebrate the year of the rabbit.
Happy Chinese New Year!

I am learning to ask for pictures, something that has not been easy for me.

Now that is one adorable child. Bravo for your courage.

These are wonderful photos -- when I come to Portland, I think I must come here! That child is adorable -- yes, people are generally terribly flattered you asked. I think you read Beth who makes people jump. They just like to.
