Azalea

The complex of Yingshanhong is still a matter of childhood. The most red moon flower in the world is Yingshan red. This jingle known to all women and children in my hometown is my initial understanding of Yingshanhong. Every April day, the front and back of the house in my hometown and the mountain corner along the road are full of Yingshan red. Red like fire, pink like Chardonnay, white like snow, cluster into clusters, competing for beauty. In my impression, most of them are wet and furry, with sweat on petals and flower buds. My friends call them toilet water. We often pick off the flower technique with dew, rub it with small hands, and put it into our mouth. It’s sour, sweet and cozy. Of course, the price paid was that the small mouth was dyed red by the flower juice, and the small mouth of the blood basin was horrible. Therefore, the feeling of Yingshanhong at that time was always strange. The real love for Yingshanhong dates back to the time when I was in primary school. It was an era of advocating heroes, a “Sparkling Red Star” and a song “Yingshan red”: At midnight, I look forward to the dawn, the cold winter lunar December and the spring breeze. If I want to look forward to the Red Army, all over the ridge, Yingshanhong sang the beautiful mountains and rivers. At the same time, our whole generation of teenagers worshiped Pan Dongzi without exception and fell in love with Yingshanhong overnight. Later, in the text “I love the Red Azalea in Shaoshan” in middle school, the text compares the Red Azalea in Shaoshan to fire, morning glow and blood, and mourns the revolutionary heroes with deep feelings, with distinct images, deep feelings once deeply influenced and inspired a generation. What’s more, our generation has a great reverence for Yingshanhong and understood the reason why flowers are so red. From then on, every time I see Yingshanhong in the mountain fields, courtyard venues, nursery flower markets and park squares, my heart will twitch. For Yingshanhong, we are ordinary people, no wonder it won the favor of many literati in ancient and modern times. Bai Juyi, a poet in Tang dynasty, called the flower Xi Shi. Therefore, Yingshanhong has a good reputation as Xi Shi in flowers. “Azaleas” written by Cheng Yanxiong of Southern Tang Dynasty wrote: azaleas and birds, how can they be on credit for their resentment and beauty. It is suspected that the snow in the mouth drops into flowers on the branches. With this special affection for Yingshanhong, I went to Shaoshan, the holy land of revolution, Jinggang Mountain, the cradle of revolution, Ruijin, Hongdu, Xingguo, Ningdu, Macheng and other places successively. This gave me a deeper understanding of Yingshanhong. According to legend, Du Yu, the Emperor of Shu in ancient times, loved his common people very much. After his death, his soul became a cuckoo. Every spring, cuckoo birds fly to wake up the common people! Quickly cuckoo! Blood flew out of my mouth, and drops of blood spilled on the ground, which dyed the shining red of the mountains. Yingshanhong is also called Azalea, Red Azalea, manshanhong, Qingming flower, Yanshanhong, yanshanhua and so on. It is known as the King of Woody flowers. It is the city flower of Changsha and Macheng, and also the national flower of Nepal. It mainly grows in acidic soil in the middle and lower reaches of Yangtze River. Yingshanhong is different from many famous flowers and plants. She is willing to live in plain and barren land. She never hates hard environment and is willing to get along with wild ferns and many unknown Miscellaneous shrubs day and night. She is simple and simple in nature, peace, as long as you like, everyone can appreciate it and get close to it. Even if you want to fold a few branches to take home and put them in the vase, it is easy to do it, and it is not as easy to be stabbed as folding some branches, she is easy to be stained by the SAP; She is very beautiful and breathtaking, but she is never arrogant and not luxurious; Her whole body is treasure, and its roots, leaves and flowers can be used as medicine, which can dispel wind and dampness, activating blood circulation and removing blood stasis, clearing away heat and toxic materials, eliminating phlegm and relieving cough, etc. It can be used for rheumatic arthritis, bronchitis, and external use to treat traumatic bleeding and traumatic injury; She is also so selfless and selfless, after experiencing the enthusiasm and noise in full bloom, the withered petals fell quietly and returned to the Earth without complaint or regret. It was born with a spirit of selfless dedication regardless of gain or loss. These characters are more like the folks in our old revolutionary base areas! Not bad, whether it is the yellow and Western world of “Azalea red on Jinggang Mountain” or the towering and Green Mountain in “Sparkling Red Star”, the Yingshan red everywhere does not symbolize the obscurity of our old revolutionary base areas, are the folks willing to contribute! The blood in The Crying Place of Azalea becomes a flower, and each clump contains a tenacious character, each branch is engraved with a memory of life and death, and each of them carries a persistent soul, each flap symbolizes a wisp of endless good feelings. I praise Azalea!
