China trip – 4. Snowing seeds in Beijing

I think I have seen this from martial arts movies set in Hong Kong or Japan.

It seems at certain times of the year, this “snow” appears from the sky.    Its actually seed or blossom from trees.   It gives the parks in this area of the world a completely different look.  There is lots of it that blows everywhere in these parks.

These wooden huts tend to be beautifully decorated, even looking upwards in the rafters.
