After Sulfur Springs we drove on to the flower clock, which was at a lower elevation and therefore didn’t have rain or fog. Yangmingshan is very large and beautiful, and one of their spring attractions is a flower festival, which was just beginning. The gardens had been planted in the most beautiful designs and arrangements, and were just beginning to fill in with color. Across the street from it was a sakura (Japanese cherry tree) orchard, which was all abloom.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
