Golden rape flowers are now in full bloom in a 135.73-hectare rape field in the Hefei National High-tech Industry Development Zone.
The flowers undulate like yellow waves in the soft breeze, creating a sea of gold, and attract spring visitors.
Walking into the sea of rape flowers, visitors can smell the refreshing fragrance, see little bees and butterflies flutter around the flowers and bath in the warm spring sunshine.
The rape flowers grow in the vacant plots to the west of Fangxing Avenue in the zone. The local government has been striving to strengthen management of such vacant plots in order to improve the city's appearance.
Li Huan, a city patrol officer, said: "Last year, we allowed scientific research institutes to use the land to carry out experiments. I did not expect that such a good crop of rape flowers would grow this year. It creates a pleasing experience for the residents. In this way, the vacant plots now have both ornamental value and economic value."
According to Li, the plots are directly below Xinqiao Airport's flight routes, so that passengers can enjoy an aerial view of the rape field when flying over the land.
