Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

Chinese New Year, London 2016

London’s Chinese community celebrates its New Year Festival on Sunday 14 February 2016, the main public celebration being focussed around Gerrard Street and the surrounding area of Soho, City of Westminster.

However there was at least one lion performing in the area on the previous day when some restaurants had lettuces hung up for it to devour.   And at least one restaurant displayed artificial peach blossom decorations.
