Chia sẻ
(VOVWORLD) - The blooming of To Day flowers (Prunus cerasoides,) or wild peach flowers marks the start of spring in the northwest mountain region.

The flowers are closely associated with spring in the Northwest mountains inhabited by various ethnic groups, including the Mong in Dien Bien province.

Each flower boasts five pink petals like peach blossoms, but when they bloom, they form clusters with thick, long, and red pistils.

When the flowers are in full bloom, they make the mountains and villages throughout the region more picturesque.

The tree is a woody plant featuring a wide canopy. It is grown on hillsides and mountainsides. The flowers bloom a few weeks before the Lunar New Year festival.

It is also the time when the Mong ethnic people go to spring festivals.

The flowers are also often featured on the costumes of Mong girls.

In Dien Bien province, the wild peach trees mainly grow in areas such as Tay Trang of Dien Bien district, along with the high-deo villages in Sa Dung, Na Son, Pu Nhi, Keo Lom, and Tia Dinh communes.

The flowers bring a message of happiness and mark the arrival of spring in mountain areas.

The Mong in the Northwest region love To Day flowers because they represent the soul and lifestyle of the local people.
