十二月花名歌 The Song of Flowers in Twelve Months
Learn how to say all these popular flowers in Chinese! I made a little changes here and there for language learning.
(According to the Chinese lunar calendar -- which is about one month later than the calendar you use, say, the first month means February),
In the first month, plum blossom smells so sweet.
In the second month, orchid is held inside the pot.
In the third month, lilac fills up the whole tree.
In the fourth month, azaleas lean against the low wall.
In the fifth month, lilies' fragrance drifts to 10 miles far.
In the sixth month, roses are the most beautiful
In the seventh month, jasmine is worn on (girl's) head.
In the eighth month, the pond is filled with lotus flower.
In the ninth month, chrysanthemums start to bloom.
In the tenth month, lavenders spit their fragrance.
In the eleventh month, daffodils are set on the table.
In the twelfth month, winter plum sends its aroma in the snow.
