YouTube above not applicable? watch full video at Bilibili: 周南 桃夭
桃之夭夭, the words is familiar to every Chinese , the situation described is common along the Yellow river and Yangtze river in early spring. Yet the subject is taken as peach flower mostly, which I do not consent to.
The peach tree symbolize marriage, fertility and descendants with peach flowers, fruits and leaves. Peach flower becomes the most popular allusion for young girl in the later generations. The simplicity, the realism, together with the blessing and scenic view shared by everyone make it lever lasting.
