The white blossoms always catch people's eyes.
By the time spring comes, the peach blossoms, cherry blossoms and azaleas seem like they are having a beauty contest. Their beauty is appealing. Whenever the rainy season comes, the spectacular view of floodwater being released always attracts many visitors.
