It is summer now,so hot everyday. However,the weather is cloudy today,not hot,so I went to the west lake and nearby scenic spots. Well,firstly,let me show some flowers.
This is water nymph.
Actually,it is far from me.So I the highest optical zoom and put the camera against a rock,so we can see it clearly. This is Hosta plantaginea. It is said to be fragrant, however, I only found its beauty. It's clear,isn't it?

How about the Ivy? I think they are very strong since they are climbing the trees and seems succesfull. Hehe, perhaps someone helps them.
This morning,I climb the mountain firstly. The mountain is called Huanglong,means yellow dragon. There is a hole on the mountain which is called Huanglong hole. It has an old story. Long long ago,Hangzhou city had a drought. The local people prayed for many times,but in vain. Then one day,a axman found fog in the mountain everyday. So some of them went to find the origin.They spent a lot of time and finally found a hole. To their astionishment,they found a dragon in the hole. They told it to the village head. The village head has heard from the grandfather who also heard from his grandfather,that there lives a dragon in the mountain,which could disgorge water. They wanted the awake the dragon,however,they were afraid of it. At last, they found a method. They beat the drums through the day near the dragon.At last,it woke and flied to the sky. Then it disgorged water from its month. The drought ended. Well,it is only a story and I descried it as I remembered.But it is really very cool in the hole,I mean the temperature is low there.
Thanks to the public bike,I can visit the lake easily. It's free of charge. As I remember, the government learned it from Europe. And I also heard that the European failed because of high preserving cost. There are many spots nearby,so it's very convinient. Actually,there are over 10 000 public bikes among the city. There are also some spots in my town.
Beautiful lake! I have never seen this before. It is really a good day. The wind is strong,so the waves are also big. You know some boats even can't move because of the waves. However,when the wind is weak,the waves disappeared. So interesting.
Qu Yuan Feng He park is very beautiful too, so silent and with so many beautiful water lily.
