Just wandering our backyard another day, I found a pair of joy - a pair of new born fawns. Welcome to this beautiful world, hope you have a great time exploring around!
Up close and personal
I took a one-week trip to Santa Barbara alone last week. It not only helped me to refresh from busy schedules at work, but also gave me a chance to visit local zoo to get up close and personal with those lovely animals.

What are these Pelicans doing?
I have never stopped to be fascinated by American white pelicans soon after I saw them floating / fishing in lakes or rivers. There is a group of white pelicans gathering near a dam located at Granite Falls during summertime. They relay on fishes to survive there. It is fun to watch their daily activities, … Continue reading What are these Pelicans doing?

The Wild Flowers in a Wild Garden
There is a Wild Garden not far from my home, on the way to my yoga studio. It is a place I have been stopping by at least once per year, during the timeframe between July and August.
