Hi everyone! Have you noted that what those white spots are on the mountain? Those are what we call tung blossoms (also known as paulownia flower). This beautiful sight is the second major highlight of the year for flower lovers in Taiwan after cherry blossom season. Thousands of visitors go to hill and forest in April and May to see the blossoms up close. My friends and I have no exception. We went to the neighboring areas and took numerous pictures of them the other day.
What makes them especially popular here is their snow-like appearance and colorful beauty - pure-white petals and bright-red filaments with yellow anthers. Thanks to their large numbers and size, trees seen from afar seem to be covered with a layer of snow. When the blossoms fall in large numbers to the ground, they often completely cover stretches of country roads and hiking trails.
Many parents also took their children there for relaxing as well as experiencing a rich ecological surrounding. I found a mother who corrected some flowers from the ground, stringing the cord with and then put it on her daughter. See, how sweet and eye-catching that girl is!
