March 30 Yangmingshan with Papa and Mama

Flower season in Yangmingshan National Park lasts for about two months. Papa and Mama were visiting during flower season, so we went up to the park to see the flowers.

Jeff is always the one taking photos of other people picking the lilies, but this time he picked and I got to take his photo!

The weather was cool and drizzly as we were walking around the valley.

We ended the day at the Flower clock in the Yangming Park section of Yangmingshan. Mama wanted to see if it had changed since the last time (a long time ago) she had seen it. According to her, it was just the same as she remembered it!
