Visitors enjoy the view of cherry blossoms in Yuyuantan Park in Beijing, capital of China, March 28, 2016. The florescence of cherry blossoms in the park will last for about a month.

 

  Located to the northwest of the park, Cherry Garden is famous for its cherry blossoms. In the spring of 1973, 180 cherry trees were sent as gifts from Japan and were planted in the garden. Later on, more and more cherry trees were cultivated here. Today the garden has been the home for over 3,000 cherry trees. When cherry trees blossom in early spring (from late March to early April), tourists pour into the garden to enjoy the beautiful flowers. Metasequoias and bamboos flourish in the garden making Cherry Garden a wonderful place even when cherry blossoms are not in bloom.
