When you look around Wuxi at the plants, they are all perfectly trimmed, aligned in rows. You see all the common plants, pittosporum, loropetalum, camelia, etc. What you don't see are wildflowers, unless you visit the nearby mountain. When Mark and I first arrived in Wuxi, a teacher Dave, took us to the mountain where tons of coreopsis were in bloom. I had forgotten the feeling of being surrounded by nature until yesterday when we walked up to the top of the mountain passing peoples vegetable gardens and tiny wildflowers (with honey bees!).
