Spring Blossoms in Hangzhou


Cherry Blossoms by the creek

Being born and bred in the Tropics where plants are green throughout the year and flowers bloom all year round, experiencing Spring is inspirational and amazing. When I first arrive I notice that all the trees are bare. When the sun gets hotter like 20 degrees C and above, flower buds sprouts from twigs and branches. Within days buds turn to flowers and tiny leaves start to grow.

The most amazing is seeing Cherry Blossoms and red Plum Blossoms. The entire trees have flowers and no leaves. After a few days petals start to fall, while some buds continue to bloom.
