Peachy!




At the Beijing International Media Center (BIMC -- nicknamed "B.M., I see" due to it's remote location in the city) we spotted a most curious and random site. Feast your eyes on China Peach Farmer's answer to Georgia and the U.S. South's claims to anything peachy!

Admittedly, this box presentation impressed me greatly and the photo does not do it justice. Every peach in that display was specially grown in a contraption that shapes the peach fuzz to grow in patterns that reveal Mandarin symbols or Olympic pictograms.

There are also specially-grown gourds in the shape of soccer balls and even Buddhas! But not at the peach farms highlighted in this display.
