My theme this year is Burma AKA Myanmar. I used to live in Laos, so this was a return to Southeast Asia that I looked forward to. I spent a little over three weeks exploring this country, learning a bit about its culture: its history, religion, and language. I thought others might enjoy some of what I learned and see some of what I saw.

|Hundreds of Acres of Garden|
|If you’ve seen one orchid, have you seen them all?|
|All of these are outside and lush.|
Besides the Botanical Garden, they have amazing Floating Gardens with all kinds of fresh produce.

Keeping my record of not getting both right, I'm going to say true for both today.
I've never seen tomatoes floating as they are grown. That is so cool, and the orchids!! Wow, thanks for sharing… Lisa, co-host AtoZ 2015, @ http://www.lisabuiecollard.com

Floating gardens? Pretty neat. I wouldn't be surprised if the gardens are controlled by the government…
These flowers are so beautiful and they must smell divine. The colours and lushness of it all. So I will again say True to both questions…let's see how I do(hahahaaa)

Another pretty set of gardens for G. If I could grow flowers like those maybe my garden wouldn't be full of weeds.
