The premier flower in Spring of Sichuan should be no other flower than the peach blossom of Longquan. The Longquanyi District, the well-known “mountain of flowers and fruits”, is named by the State Council as the “China peaches’ homeland”. You can see flowers and enjoy fragrant fruits in all seasons here. In the middle or the last ten days of March every year, the International Peach Blossom Festival is held here. There are altogether more than 17 million peach trees, which ornament the 555-km2 land with splendid flowers and trees. They look like snow and frost in this while, or cloud and evening glow in that while. In Longquan, you can find views more touching than those praised by an ancient poet in
Like the ocean endless greenness spreads.
In countless flowers a lonely city nestles.
