The flower offered of itself
And eloquently spoke
In languages of rainbows
And secret silence...

Following a delicious lunch of Korean beef (yes, Korean beef is amazing) barbecue, with Bob and his staff , an office outing took us to the Goyang Flower Festival on May 4, 2016. Oh how beautifully the May flowers paint the earth with color and disperse whispers of perfume into the air.
Mr. Kim, our driver; Yoonhee, Bob's office assistant; and all of the KRCC office staff (and I) enjoyed a warm and windy day in Goyang.
As part of the festival, special flower-themed exhibits showcased flower topped cupcakes, elaborate dried flower art, woodcarvings, and floral arrangements.
We took a leisurely walk around the lake and enjoyed the manicured park along with groups of school children. Clusters of colorful backpacks seemed to blossom like flowers in the field.
To our surprise, there was even a Toilet Museum, where we read about dogs and pigs that were raised to consume human waste! And then there were the royal thrones . . .
Flowers and Food - who could want more?!
