A brief break from Istanbul and Athens while I share some spring time pictures for you from the Shanghai Botanical Garden to wet your appetite for your own Spring that will be arriving soon, if not already. This post is mostly pictures with a few random comments, because, really, beautiful flowers speak for themselves!
