An international peony conference began Friday in east China's Shandong Province.

The World Peony Conference 2019 is being held in the city of Heze, with hundreds of varieties of peonies on display. Thousands of tourists, business people and flower experts have arrived in Heze to enjoy the event.

A major forum and four sub-forums will be held during the event, scheduled to last until Sunday. A peony industry expo will also be held.

It is the first international peony conference on such a big scale, and 17 famous experts from a number of countries are in attendance, said Liu Hong, with the China Flower Association.

"The experts and authorities of related companies will discuss about peony growth and peony-related products at the conference," Liu said.

Heze was named by the China Flower Association as "peony capital of China" in 2012. Currently, the city has 32,400 hectares of peony plantation, and churns out 25,000 tonnes of peony seed oil annually. Last year, output value of the peony industry exceeded 8 billion yuan (1.2 billion U.S. dollars) in the city.

The story takes place in my home-town Province Shan-dong and I feel pround of the pleasant event!
The fresh flowers in the picture remind me what happened in my childhood:
In early morning on wedding day, the groom‘s relatives and friends would rode new bicycles on the front of which paper-flowers tied for decoration to meet the bride that was beautiful man-made scenery in children's eyes!  As the bride arrived, kids even adults would compete with each other on who could ‘rob’ the flower for good fortune!  In those days people seldom bred flowers for commercial purpose and it was rare for me to see peony on farmland in the local era!
Childish pure  mindset can simplify your life which let you live in a light way! Without man-made troubles you will work in high efficiency!
