The 2012 Zhuzihu Calla Lily Festival is underway in Yangmingshan’s Zhuzihu area and will run until April 29. Calla lilies are expected to be in bloom until the end of May. The theme of this year’s festival is Aesop’s Fables, and farmers have creatively incorporated scenes from the fables into the Calla lily fields, giving visitors some extra enjoyment as they pick fresh flowers.

The festival’s organizers are also presenting a series of pastoral concerts, guided ecological and cultural tours around Zhuzihu, and creative do-it-yourself gardening workshops. In addition, a “Calla lily flash mob party” — the first of its kind — will be held on Zhuzihu Boulevard this coming Sunday at 10:30am. People can register on site on the day of the event to join characters from Aesop’s Fables on a tour around the Calla lily fields. For more information, visit the festival Web site at www.callalily.com.tw.

二○一二「竹子湖海芋季」自即日起在台北市陽明山竹子湖地區進行至四月二十九日,而賞花期則持續到五月底。今年海芋季以「伊索的『芋』言」為主題,農友們展現花藝巧思,將《伊索寓言》故事場景納入,重現海芋田裡,為親手採海芋民眾增添一些摘採的樂趣。

主辦單位還舉辦一系列的「田園音樂會」、「竹子湖生態人文導覽解說」與「創意園藝DIY」等活動。此外,海芋季還在本週日上午十點半於竹子湖「海芋大道」,推出前所未有的「海芋田園趴」快閃活動,民眾只要當日現場報名,即可跟《伊索寓言》角色一起遨遊海芋田。更多資訊請上www.callalily.com.tw查詢。
