Last week, the editor of Orange went to the Guanwu National Forest Recreation Area and found that the cherry blossoms were blooming slightly faster than expected this year. However, I did not expect to see the sharing of the official fan page editor in the past two days. The flower status of the King Sakura in Wushanzhuang Former Wushe has reached full bloom. Simply put, the cherry blossoms have burst!

So this year’s flowering period may be shortened, but if the weather conditions are good, the Wushe Sakura King Flowering Period in Guanwu Mountain Villa is expected to be enjoyed in early April.
