Shame it's too cold now to swim...


  1. Winter melon
    The winter melon, also called ash gourd, white gourd, winter gourd, tallow gourd Chinese preserving melon is a vine grown for its very large fruit, eaten as a vegetable when mature. It is the only member of the genus Benincasa. Wikipedia

    Gongs: New - Try a Chinese store or if you have a China Town.

    Antique: Could be expensive. Try China Town Antiques.
    Ebay: Type in Antique Chinese Gongs.
    Be careful a lot out of China is touted as antiques but aren't.
    You could also search antique gongs. A lot of British antiques were brought back from China.

    Hope this helps
