Winter Bird Watching 冬景賞鳥
Beautiful birds! The best spots for photo are either indoor by window or outdoor near bird feeder!
Planting lotus seed indoor (Nelumbo nucifera)室內孵蓮子
This time I use temperature controlled aquarium heater to keep the water temperature at 24 C. There is a light right above the container for 8 hours a day. Normally from seed to first bloom will take 1-3 months if growing condition is good. This is a single, deep pink lotus. Its flower of mother plant looks like this…
蓮/荷（學名：Nelumbo nucifera）蓮科蓮屬多年生草本挺水植物,荷花原產於中國. 它是印度和越南的國花. 種類有很多種,從大型的需種到寬廣池塘的到小型的碗蓮. 又分開花的花蓮和不開花食用為主的菜蓮品種,耐寒與否和品種也有很大的差異. 一般蓮荷種植偏愛黏性土壤,全日照,重肥和喜高溫.
It is very beautiful to look at really…but unfortunately the weight of ice coatings were too heavy to bare for many trees, the tree in the picture was completely down…many households lost their power and some slowly got back their power. I hope everyone can have their power back for warm holidays in their own home!
