April in Hefei is in full bloom this spring with lots of green, lots of sunshine and the temperatures climbing. At Hefei Botanical Garden, the varieties of flowers surrounding the park have turned it into a colorful wonderland. I immersed myself among the peonies, magnolias, pink and white cherry blossoms and hyacinths. But my favorites by far were the more than 120,000 tulips from over 40 varieties of tulip bulbs blossoming before me. A rainbow of colors in red, yellow, violet, pink and fuchsia called out to me…and there was nothing else to do but bring out my camera!
