Me Linh flower market bustles again.
After 28 days of being placed under medical quarantine, life has returned to normal for the people in Ha Loi Village, Me Linh Commune, Me Linh District, Hanoi.
Me Linh is dubbed as the largest flower capital of northern region.
Many flowerbeds have withered after many days without care.
Flower growers trim off dead flowers and prepare soil for a new season.
Rose gardens have been revitalised and the first roses were harvested for sale at the market.
Dang Thi Tinh, a local flower farmer, cuts roses to bring them to the market.
“We are glad that everything has returned normal and flower gardens have shown signs of revival”, said local flower grower Nguyen Manh Tung.
Flowers boast their beauty in early sunlight, signalling a good start for the people of Ha Loi after the quarantine period.

“I have lost many customers after the quarantine period. And now I must start over with my business again. But it is still better than staying at home and watching the flowers wither,” shared local flower grower Tran Van Chien.
