The Gwangyang International Maehwa Flower Festival(광양 매화축제)

Ah! I had been hungry for spring. I missed the spring scent. After passing long and tedious winter where could I meet blooming Spring flower outstandingly accompanied by the right after next step? One way must do in this case is to run south, unconditionally. 
I went to the plum blossom festival of HongSsangRi Farm (홍쌍리 청매실농원) held in Gwangyang, South Jeolla Province which is in the southern end that reached from Seoul for three and a half hours by bus. The parking lot was packed with cars and there was in festive mood with each tent sold various local food as well as with flocked Springtime picnickers of March who are longing for Spring. Plum blossom grows in popular in the country of South Korea, China, Japan located in East Asia.
It is expressed come along with the modifier called 'plum in snow ' because the tree flowers in between late winter and early spring and sometimes it covered with late snow. It has been cultivated long as an ornamental in the garden of the upper class and expressed in many literary works and works of art with pure, bright and deep floral scents, as a symbol of expressing elegance, purity, innocence, longing and hope metaphorically.
The fruits harvested around the beginning of June have so strong sour taste that it is not easy for us to eat right away as the type of fruit. After process of the fermentation usually, they are eaten in the form of alcohol, tea, concentrate, pickled dishes. Thanks to the trends of wellness, explosive popularity rose for last few decades. This is a necessity for each household. In particular, there is no natural food to surpass in digestion failure.
My nose was tickled by softly light beige-colored sands and a gentle breeze of the Seomjin river when I stood on the observation deck and looked away down the lower side. That river is also the very just place used as favorite  background in many novels, isn't it?
 The old tiled houses and the thatched house built in many places within the farm add to the feeling of mountain village. It seemed like a white snow field everywhere I looked at here and there.
I heard that the full plum flower garden at the moonlit night came out of the historical drama as a background and went viral, I thought the reason is quite understandable. I could not deny that it is the best place for romantic atmosphere. Springtime is not long. Come on!
