Yuexiu park, GZ

Five Rams Stone Sculpture
There is a legend about the Five Rams Stone Sculpture: once upon a time, there were five immortals came to Guangzhou from the South China Sea. Their clothes were in five colors and they were riding on five rams in different colors. In the mouth of each of the rams there was a straw of paddy with six rice heads. The immortals sent the paddy to the local residents and wish them free from famine for ever. After that the immortals flied away while the five rams were left and turned into stone rams.

It seems the spring arrives earlier in GZ. These photos are taken in February.

Some warm photos from Guangzhou. This is the largest park there. It's a great place to enjoy the peaceful nature.

What a wonderful escape. Thank you very much. And yes, the tree is incredible !

Thank you for your kind words. Next week I'd like to introduce a new theme of mine: 易經 / 易经.
It would be a pleasure to hear then from you. Please have a good Friday.
