CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- “The good rain knows its season; and when the spring arrives, then it comes.” February 18 is the Rain Water in the 24 solar terms, marking the beginning of the rain in spring. As the saying goes, “spring rain is as expensive as oil”, the rain in spring is not only important for the growth of crops, but also wakes up the earth having a deep sleep during the winter.
In ancient China, the Rain Water was divided into three seasons: “the otter hunts for fish by the river; the swan goose is coming from faraway; and plants begin to sprout”. Among which, the third says that after the Rain Water, vegetation everywhere begin to sprout, everything starts growing, flowers bloom, and the earth shows a vibrant scene.
As the temperature rises in Chongqing, residents are stepping out of their homes to enjoy the beautiful scenery of peach blossoms and cherry blossoms. How about taking advantage of the spring scenery to go for a walk together! (Translated by Liu Hongyan, Fathom Language Limited)
