CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- On February 18, the seventh day of the first lunar month of the Year of the Ox and the first working day after the Spring Festival holiday in 2021, the brilliant sunshine returned to the main districts of Chongqing. Hopefully, many people returning to work in the city also saw the return of spring following the flowers on the roadside.
Plum blossoms, Cerasus subhirtella, peach blossoms... Along with the arrival of spring, the various spring flowers on both sides of the roads in the main urban districts of Chongqing are in full bloom, making them a beautiful sight in the city in early spring.
Flowers already in full bloom
At 15:00 on February 18, with the temperature in the main urban districts of Chongqing reaching 16°C and the sun struggling to spill through the clouds onto the ground, Miss Lin, who was driving past on Yangtze River 2nd Road, asked her best friend, who was sitting in a passenger seat, to pick up her mobile phone and specifically take pictures of the beautiful peach blossoms on the barrier. “The flowers look so beautiful in full bloom!” In recent days, the peach blossoms on the barrier of Yangtze River 2nd Road have been opening one after another. The flowers have covered the trees, decorating the Road into a spring-like landscape, and many people have taken pictures of the beautiful scenery when they passed by.
The train on Rail Transit Line 2 left the section of Fotuguan Station heading for Daping Station, where the hill is steep, but Meirenmei (a plum blossom) is in full bloom on both sides of the track along the hillside, which is like a complete pink sea of flowers. Birds and bees flit through and around the flowers, with the modern city in the distance and trains passing every few minutes, making a scene of springtime. Many netizens have referred to the trains on Rail Transit Line 2 as the “train to spring” for this reason. In the park above and below the train tracks, visitors take out their mobile phones to take pictures. Some photographers even climbed the hill and walked through the forest to find the perfect angle to capture the scene that everyone loves - the train heading towards spring and the future.
The flowers are also in full bloom in the area around the north end of Huanghuayuan Bridge, Dawan, Jiangbei. In recent days, people passing by have been pleasantly surprised to find that Meirenmei and Prunus Cerasifera on both sides of the road seem to have bloomed overnight, with a variety of pink and snow-white flowers turning into a boundless “sea of fragrant snow”. The flowers stretch densely for nearly a kilometer from Jiangzhou Interchange to the north end of Huanghuayuan Bridge, bringing the blessings of spring and a good mood to the public for the day. The reporter saw at Dawan Interchange that the blossoming flowers are delicate – red flowers like fire, pink flowers like rosy clouds, white flowers like snow - integrating with the road under the Bridge and the buildings on either side, making it an iconic landscape avenue in Jiangbei and even the main urban districts of Chongqing.
The flowers in full bloom along the roads have attracted many people to view, take photos and experience spring in the city. When a spring breeze blows, the petals fall, some on the shoulders, some in the hair, and the air is suffused with the sweet scent of flowers, giving the illusion of being in a beautiful fairy land.
