People gather in Wuhan East Lake Cherry Blossom Park, in Wuhan, China, on March 14. The park’s Cherry Blossom Festival includes live music and performances. It kicked off early this month. Stunning views of the pink petals can also be found at Wuhan University. The school invited medical workers from all over China to enjoy the blooms.
At this time last year, medical workers were battling the coronavirus pandemic throughout the country. Now, they can appreciate cherry blossom season. In Wuhan, as elsewhere, it represents hope and renewal.
