An usual activity I do during the little breaks I take at work is going to the store and buying huge peaches.
I’m totally into it.
I’ll admit, I’m kinda wondering what the applicative capacity is; same time, pretty sick.
Applicative capacity: being a superhero.
applicative capacity: The apocalypse.
Applicative Capacity: The Hunger Games

Every spring, the entire county of Luoping will transform into a brilliant golden sea of flowers.
The small county of Luoping lies in the relatively underdeveloped eastern part of the Yunnan province, neighboring Guizhou and Guangxi provinces. It sits 137 miles (220 km) east of the capital Kunming,China.
In Luoping, the local plains in the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau, is home to around 32,865 acres (133 million sq m) of canola flowers every spring. Spring is also honey season, the blooming canola (rapeseed) flowers attract bees and the area has become a national base for raising bees and processing honey. A few miles to the north of Luoping is NiuJie, here the flowers are grown in circular rings following the contours of the slopes similar to rice terraces.
The 9 Dragon Waterfall (Jiulong Waterfalls) is nearby, boasting a group of majestic waterfalls, the tallest which is nearly 184 feet (56m) high and 360 feet (110m) wide. Along the southeast portion of Luoping runs the Duoyi River which is formed by the water from five underground springs, the 7-½ mile (12km) river is surrounded by bamboo.
Best time of the year to visit is mid-February to early April.
The best view is atop Jinjifeng / Jinjiling (Golden Rooster Hill); many photographers set up on the top to shoot the sunrise and sunset over the sea of flowers.

Assyrian Relief from the Palace at Nineveh
Carved into a gypsum wall-panel from the South West Palace of the king Sennacherib at Nineveh, this relief shows two of the king’s bodyguards dressed in austere uniforms that nevertheless have fine details. Both figures exhibit features that suggest them to have been drawn from different parts of the extensive Neo-Assyrian empire. For example, although the one on the right bears a shield similar to those of Assyrian soldiers, his turban and kilt suggest him to be from Palestine or elsewhere nearby. (Source)
