The Flower Home Leisure Farm’s Hydrangea Festival

The Flower Home Leisure Farm’s hydrangea festival 2020 kicked off on April 2, and it will last until mid-June when the flowering period for hydrangeas is over. During this period, visitors can appreciate many stunning hydrangea flowers in almost every corner of the flower leisure farm. The beautiful hydrangeas at the ranch come in various colors, ranging from pink to red and blue, as well as from purple to green and white.

Located in the central area of the flower ranch is a striking castle in the shape of a heart. It is constructed with dried twigs, dazzling hydrangeas in various colors, and other plants. The small square in front of the hydrangea castle is practically packed with stunning hydrangeas and other beautiful flowers and plants. The hydrangea castle, as well as the square, is so magnificent that visitors often have to line up for taking photos, especially on holidays.

The flower leisure farm’s Orchid Hall

The Orchid Hall (靚花水悅) is another highlight of the leisure farm. In addition to various species of colorful moth orchids and other eye-catching flowers and plants displayed in beautiful arrays in Orchid Hall, “Flowers in Mirrors” is the chief attraction of the Orchid Hall.

Hundreds of hydrangea flowers are stacked up in circles on a plank platform to form a cake-like flower presentation surrounded by a curved mirror wall on three sides.

These flowers and mirrors are perfectly arranged so that the flowers reflected in the mirror wall resemble the scene viewed in a kaleidoscope (萬花筒). When visitors have a picture taken alongside the “flower cake,” their images are reflected in the curved mirror wall from different angles.

There are many other beautiful hydrangea flowers tastefully displayed at various locations across the flower leisure farm. In particular, those exhibited around the two steel dancing figurines and a flower fairy figurine at the lush lawn in front of the castle-like guesthouse building always amaze visitors upon their arrival.
