Summer Lotus in Old Summer Palace

The Old Summer Palace is also known in Chinese as Yuan Ming Yuan. In July, flower buds are all over the lotus pond, waiting to bloom. Although the hot sun, walking in the landscape of this the green leaf and pink flower, also touches the cool heart and pleasing to the eye.



Chinese people have a special feeling for the lotus. From the poems of The Book of Songs to Li Sao are classic masterpieces of chanting louts. 

Sunset dyed golden the lotus pond, and lotus’s shadows sway in the evening breeze.
