Qijiang: cherries make picturesque countryside more beautiful
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The clean and tidy asphalt road winds through mountains, and no matter how bright the grass and flowers along both sides of the road are, they are not as dazzling as the red cherries under the green leaves. The plain farmers hold the dustpan full of red and tender fruits to greet the passing tourists, with the delighted and satisfied expressions instantly overflowing on their face... This is the landscape of the beautiful countryside that the author witnessed in Zhaogui Village, Sanjiang Sub-district, Qijiang District, Chongqing Municipality.

“The cherries are red. Welcome to pick!” The villagers of Zhaogui Village read this sentence silently for countless times, but didn’t say it out. They just silently proved it with their actions. The author saw in the cherry forest that, taking advantage of the fine weather, the villagers strode up the wooden ladder and collected the “red agates” in the bamboo baskets around their waist.
