Autumnal Flower Exhibition is Set to Bloom
With the temperature having recently dropped from 40 to 30 degrees centigrade, Hangzhou residents can now fully sense the arrival of autumn. Osmanthus trees, the harbinger of autumn, can be seen with their golden petals scattered all over town and when the autumn winds blow, the air is pervaded with their sweet, scented smell.
Besides osmanthus hitting Hangzhou’s headlines, there are other autumn flowers worth mentioning and these can be seen in the autumn flower exhibition entitled 'Autumnal Charm of West Lake’ which opened on Sep. 1st in Hangzhou Botanical Garden.
Hangzhou Botanical Garden is well-known for its various types of flower exhibitions, especially the annual chrysanthemum exhibition. Unlike the latter, this autumn flower exhibition boasts of a wide variety of colorful flowers including some very rare and wonderful species.
In addition, finely worked garden ornaments made of different materials are also on show to greet visitors. These garden ornaments adorn every corner of the Hangzhou Botanical Garden and add a creative and seasonal atmosphere into the exhibition.
With the theme of ‘Colorful Flowers, Ethnic Style, Green Earth’, the autumn flower exhibition applies art forms such as Earth Art (an art form that is created in nature and where natural materials are used), Installation Art (an art form of three-dimensional works that are often site-specific and designed to transform the perception of a space), potted plants and flower arrangements.
This exhibition, a must-see, is certainly set to bloom this autumn.
Recently, the city of Hangzhou was advertised in The Wall Street Journal and USA Today, and the ten-thousand-people time travel record of Hangzhou’s Song Dynasty Town has also been publicized in New York’s Times Square.
