Yesterday is the La Ba Festival, which means the eighth day of the twelfth lunar month and the temples in Hangzhou city were very boisterous and busy and at the same time the chimonanthus praecox were also blooming luxuriantly. The blooming rate of the over 1000 flowers reached above 30% and formed a strong scent in the air. The flowering phase of the chimonanthus praecox is one month and it is expected that in the spring it will step into the best blooming season.
In the Spring Festival, except for the chimonanthus praecox, the plum blossom will also bloom. Because of the reason of weather, recently the famous breeds of the plum blossom like Jiang Mei, Meiren Mei, Pink Cinnabar, LitteLver are all in the bud period and it will take time if you want to enjoy the plum blossoms. In the Spring Festival it will enter the first period of blooming and that is the best season to go to Lingfeng and enjoy the fragrance.
