Title A Spring Walk Among Early Cherry Blossoms at Wuling Farm
Introduction Spring is the time for “a hundred flowers” to bloom. As soon as someone mentions flower watching in the cool days of spring, the first thing that comes to mind can only be the pink sakura cherry blossom! After the harsh cold of winter, the huge pink blossoms with their lovely pink color strike our eyes and make us forget the gloom of winter, as if it were driven away by a world drenched in beauty, and we feel the sweetness of our surroundings. And when talk rolls around to cherry blossoms, we simply must mention the Wuling cherry blossom season. Because Wuling Farm is situated along the Central Cross-Island Highway, it is at a high elevation and temperatures are on the low side, making the huge area of the gardens a good environment for raising flowering cherry trees. Each year as we go from winter to spring, many flower-watchers are itching to begin their tour of the gardens. At the peak of the cherry blossom season, crowds of flower-watchers, eager to get a glimpse of the lovely beauty of blossoms, inundate the area. The cherry blossoms at Wuling Farm boast three colors: light pink, crimson, and pink. There is a “Cherry Blossom Path” on either side of which is a “sea of blossoms” whose beauty takes ones breath. When you visit Wuling Farm to experience for yourself the sea of cherry blossoms, you absolutely must make a pilgrimage along this path. To take the opportunity to visit Wuling Farm during cherry blossom season and appreciate the beauty of the cherry flowers is a good choice for experiencing the romantic spring season!
