Visiting Chicago. We went to Chicago for a visit of this windy city on the Memorial weekend. The weather was very nice, sunny and warm. We visited the Chicago aquarium and took a cruise to go around the lake. The traffic on highway 94 along the Chicago shoreline was very heavy. The public parks along the lakefront were packed with people. This was the first weekend with the temperature up to the 90's in Chicago. The view of Chicago skyline was very beautiful but a little hazy, maybe due to air pollution? We also visited the Chicago China Town, ate dimsum. We also visited the well-known Chicago Botanical Garden at the Northern part of the city. The garden was very nice, but there were not many flowers in bloom at this time. The roses had not bloomed yet. Part of the lake was under rennovation, therefore, the Japanese garden was not beautiful as it should be. Anyway, I took many pictures of the city and the garden, and I'll post them later in my website.

New flower pictures of this year (Spring 2006). I had 2 pages of flower pictures from the Spring of this year uploaded at my flower site: Flower gallery 2006-1 and gallery 2006-2. All pictures are good for your computer screen wall-papers or screen saver. I took thousands of pictures and selected a few that look good for your enjoyment. I'll post more pictures in the next few weeks including many orchids and roses. I hope you enjoy them. Please give me your comments or suggestion. One person suggested me to send out "flower of the day", but I think that too much work, and I cannot handle it! One thing I can do is to send email to a mailing list when I post new pictures. Anyone interested in receiving this "new flowers" mail, please email me.

New pictures from Sapa, Vietnam. We went to Sapa in 2004, took a lot of pictures, but didn't have time to post them. Sapa is a beautiful, quiet, peaceful city in the Northeast of Hanoi. Located at nearly 2 miles above sea level, Sapa is always cool during Summer. With many ethnics living there, Sapa is colorful and diversed. Please visit Sapa.
I took many pictures of flowers with my new camera (Nikon D70) this Spring. I'll post them this weekend, please come back and enjoy them, you won't be dissappointed!

Animal Pictures. My wife has a little niece who now lives in Australia. She loves animals (is that the same for all children?). Therefore, I put together a page containing many pictures of different animals that I have for her and other children around the world. The link of this page is: Zoo Animal Pictures. I think grownup people also loves these pictures!
