Chinese Chrysanthemum Flower
Photograph - Digital Photograph
People in China have cultivated Chrysanthemum Flowers since the beginning of their civilization. Symbolizing "the flower of longevity", it is no surprise to see so many of them adorning chinese doorsteps, courtyards and balconies. Because of its lenghty florescence and rare beauty, Chrysanthemum flowers have been favored by poets and painters through the ages. This particular Mum with very soft and pink petals, was quietly adorning the footsteps of an inner coutryard in Lijiang, China, lit by a few early morning winter clouds.
