      Join the happy throngs flocking to the flower markets looking for an auspicious bloom or plant for the New Year. Kumquat trees, narcissus and peonies bring prosperity; peach blossoms add fire to romance; while tangerine plants with leaves intact help ensure long-lasting relationships and 'fruitful' marriages. So, mingle with the huge, happy crowds and enliven your senses for the Year of the Rabbit!
     After clearing out some confusing information about the flower market, the Wilson and us met at the Fanling Train Station and went to Hung Hom, the end of the East Line, and found Bus #102.  It took us through the Cross Harbor Tunnel, and we were let off at the first stop which is Victoria Park.  No need to ask how to get there as tons of people were heading that way.  We just followed the crowd.  Here are some pictures to share.
