During the days of traveling from the North to the South, Ha Hien, living in Ho Chi Minh City, has recorded beautiful images of nature and the people of each land. In the photo collection of the boy born in 1997, there are many colorful pictures of the flower seasons all over the country, according to Vnexpress.

The Hien’s happiness is strolling amidst the immense Tam giac mach (buckwheat flower) fields in Mu Cang Chai, Yen Bai, or immerse in the white rapeseedi fields in Moc Chau, Son La.

Buckwheat flowers change color every week. They begin by being white, change to purplish-pink before becoming dark red.

He said he loved cherry blossoms, red silk cotton flowers, and buckwheat flowers most as even though they grow in the cold and harsh weather, they still bloom and bring peaceful beauty to the whole land.

However, the type of flower that reflects Hien’s personality is Da quy (Mexican sunflowers) in Da Lat City in the Central Highlands. "The Mexican sunflowers boast a wild beauty and conquer my heart with their bright yellow color and strong vitality,” he said.

To take wonderful pictures of the flower seasons across the country, Hien carefully learns about the time when the flowers bloom and notes. For example, the plum blossoms usually bloom in January in Moc Chau. Meanwhile, the red silk cotton flowers and peach blossoms usually bloom in late February and early March in Ha Giang. The Mexican sunflowers usually bloom in November in Da Lat City. Daisies bloom in November and December in Hanoi.
