Flower power blooms in China
Annual floral show wows visitors with a riot of color
Kunming Flower Show
Surrounded by a sea of flowers in the Chinese city of Kunming.
It was a riot of color and a homage to flower power.
In a spectacular floral display earlier this month, the Chinese city of Kunming burst into a kaleidoscope of blooms.
Visitors traveled from across China for the annual event and the Floriculture Retail Forum in Yunnan province.
But then, Kunming has always been known as the city of flowers.
“Thousands of tons of freshly cut flowers are transported to more than 80 large and medium-sized cities across China from Dounan Flower Market in Kunming City,” CGTN, a state-run television station, reported. “And they are also exported to more than 50 countries and regions worldwide.”
