In early summer, different-colored hydrangeas bloom riotously at Zhuzihu on Yangmingshan, vying for the attention of the visitors who pass among them and record this moment of beauty with their cameras.
In the language of flowers, hydrangeas symbolize hope, happiness, and eternity. While continuing to guard against the coronavirus, why not take some time to come to the mountains and admire the flowers, to give your body, mind, and soul a brief respite.
