My wife and I do not believe in celebrating Valentine’s Day. But even though we did not buy any Valentine’s Day flowers - but we did buy a few pots of Chinese New Year flowers though - flowers arrived at our front door yesterday in the form of yet another Ribbon Plant bloom. (Actually only one flower)
Just 2 weeks ago, I blogged about seeing the flowers of the Ribbon Plant or Lucky Bamboo (观音竹) in my garden for the first time. I checked the date of the photos and it turned out that it was 26 February 2006. Does that mean that our Ribbon Plant blooms every February? If the reader who commented that this blooming of the Ribbon Plant symbolizes good luck and prosperity (觀音竹開花,富貴榮華!), then can I expect good fortune to come my way?
Of course we do not believe that sort of stuff, but certainly, I am happy to see the flowers again and share more photos with you here.
Here’s wishing everyone, Chinese and non-Chinese, a Blessed Chinese New Year. May the Lord grant you your heart’s desires.
