Cherry Blossoms in Yuyuantan Park玉渊潭公园

Spring flowering in Beijing comes in successive waves of color, beginning with azaleas and ending with a barrage of roses along roads in parks, and in planters in the most unlikely spots. In between, the cherry ( yīng) trees bloom. In Cherry Blossoms in Yuyuantan Park(Yù Yuān Tán Gōngyuán) on the west side of Beijing, the cherry trees are dense. There are also a profusion of plum trees.
