¡¡¡¡The photo shows visitors enjoy weeping willow trees at Orange Isle Scenic Area, Changsha City on March 20, 2017, the very day of the Spring Equinox (Chinese: ´º·Ö).

¡¡¡¡As the fourth solar term of the year, the Spring Equinox signals the equal length of the day and night time. After the equinox, the sun moves northwards, resulting in gradually longer day time in the Northern Hemisphere and longer night in the Southern Hemisphere. It brings warmer temperature and more rain to the southern China.
