Spring wakes all nature and all plants seem to be budding right now. New leaves are sprouting from the tree branches and various delicate and adorable flowers are blooming in the genial spring breeze. It's definitely the optimal time for residents and visitors to come out and take spring outings among the vibrant spring scenery.
The city of Yangzhou in East China's Jiangsu province has long been a destination for tourists seeking spring beauty, just like what Chinese poet Li Bai (701-762), a great romantic poet of the Tang Dynasty (618-907), wrote "Heading east for Yangzhou among hazy vernal hues in the lunar March".
