For 4 SEASONS countries like KOREA, Japan, China and Taiwan,SPRING seasons is a SPECIAL period for them as its mark DOWN the COLD that they experience for few MONTHS. This seasons NOT only the beginning of BEAUTIFUL seasons but overall FAMOUS for CHERRY BLOSSOM! Even though the CHERRY BLOSSOM normally just BLOOM for around 1 to 2 WEEKS every year! However do YOU know that, APART of cherry blossom there are FEW more FLOWERS that can be ENJOYED during SPRING seasons?
Anyone KNOWS what those FLOWERS are?? O-o Honestly I EXPERIENCE these TWO types of FLOWERS during my SPRING trips but I still MISS a chance to see CHERRY BLOSSOM. ㅠㅠ Maybe NEXT time??ㅋㅋ The FLOWERS I'm talking about are TULIPS and CANOLA. For TODAY lets talk about CANOLA. Canola flowers basically being DEVELOP from the plant breeding of RAPESEED. This OIL seed plant been USED as FUEL in the ANCIENT civilization.Its shows that this PLANT is such important COMMODITY in the PAST. Ok lets MOVE to the EXACT topic, I am NOT going to explain CANOLA scientifically lol! As I'm NOT good at it.ㅋㅋㅋ

O-o Are you READY to SWIM in the OCEAN of YELLOW canola? If YES why not HEADING yourself to GYEONGSANGNAM-DO! I know some of you might SAY ah its quite FAR from SEOUL isn't it?
