Solar Term: grain rain (穀雨)

The last solar term in spring is grain rain. In this solar term, all the whole area around the yellow river and in Taiwan have plentiful rain. The farmers are busy with spring crops. The rain nourishes the grain, thus the name of this solar term: grain rain.  
Due to the plentiful rain, plans grow lavishly, fish and crab become plentiful as well. This is also a busy season for the those who raise silk warms! 
With the beginning of april, tung flowers blossom. You can clim the hills and admire the white tung flowers- a wonderful season to travel into nature. 
Before you take your trip, remember to to meditate during this solar term! Solar terms are a good chance to practice meditation, as energy is strong today.
