Mai cherry – “young girl” is afraid of mountainous town
Cherry blossoms are a very interesting variety, different from the Japanese Sakura . This flower has a relative of the plum family, but the 5-petaled flower is like an apricot blossom with a gentle and shy beauty. As a familiar typical image of Da Lat city, it attracts tourists to admire every spring. Cherry apricots usually live at an altitude of over 1,000 meters in temperate climates and low temperatures before they can flower. Bringing a beauty close but also equally interesting for anyone to admire.Photo: @yourinnguyen
The characteristic of the cherry apricot tree is that it usually falls off all its leaves in autumn and on hibernation days lies dormant until it blooms brilliantly. Flowers usually bloom from 1 to 2 months, sometimes alone each individual plant, dotted with sweetness and fragility in the wind. Makes anyone who comes to the foggy city standing under the pink cherry apricot trees in the spring weather feel indescribable vibrations. Photo: @__ yo.nguyenPhoto: @mymyaries
