Pictures of fruits.
I took many pictures of fruits in the last several years, especially the tropical fruits. In some countries like Vietnam, Thailand..., there are fruit festival every year. The tropical fruits in many different shapes, sizes and tastes are arranged into pieces of art. I have pictures of many tropical fruits like durian, dragonfruit, longan, rumbutan, jackfruit etc. Some temperate fruits are included also, such as peach, pears, apple... Please let me know what do you think about these fruit pictures. Thank.

Beetles, beetles and beetles!
There are too many beetles this year in my garden, Japanese beetles, cucumber beetles! We bought a Japanese beetle trap, and trapped more than thousands Jap beetles already! But they still eat my roses and hibiscus! The cucumber beetles are another problem, because of the bacterial wilt that they carry. My cucumber leaves are wilted, then the whole branches were wilted. The only way I can do is to cut and throw them away. Is it because of the warm weather last Winter? or hot Summer? Does anyone have the answer?

Rose pictures.
I took these rose pictures in May, but had no time to post them until now! This year, some rose flowers got a little damage by late cold weather in April, however, they are still gorgeous. In my new rose gallery, there are 3 new roses that won the AARS award in 2006, check them out! All pictures in my Flower Gallery had been taken for their beauty, however, I added some infomation about each flower in the 2006 gallery so you know what they are. It's hot in all USA now, please stay cool!!!

New pictures of orchids and peonies. I took pictures of these orchids and peonies in the early Spring, but don't have time to post them. This July 4th holiday, I stay home, relax and post these beautiful flowers for your enjoyment. My home now is quiet, all children are away. We have an "empty nest"! Four more months to work! I can't wait for the time to retire and travel. Happy Independent Day, USA!
