Now is the best time for visitors to admire cherry blossoms in Zhangxi Cherry Garden in Ningbo's Haishu district.
Nestling on Siming Mountain at an altitude of 800 meters, the garden is home to more than 103 varieties of cherry flowers.
The blossoms came into full bloom about 10 days earlier than usual due to the relatively high temperature and sufficient sunshine. The peak admiration period is slated to run until the end of this month.
They will be succeeded by azalea blossoms in May and lily flowers in the subsequent months until August.
In addition to admiring flowers, visitors to the garden can also enjoy recreation facilities, including trampolines and swings.
Lu Genshui, head of the the Zhangxi professional cooperative of flowers and trees, said that they invested more than 2 million yuan ($307,692) this year to build the recreation facilities in an effort to enrich visitors' experiences.
