Asiatic apple flowers blossom in SW China

Recently, the Asiatic apple flowers blossomed in the Yintiaoling National Nature Reserve, decorating the forests with a burst of white and pink.

The reserve located in the Chongqing Municipality, southwest China, covers an area with the only old-growth forest in Chongqing. As the altitude there is higher than in other places, the Asiatic apple flowers that usually blossom during the spring have a relatively late blossoming period.
