Comments

Thanks for this description. I like how the solar terms are more finely tuned the natural cycle than our western months. Enjoying the last few days of 白露...

Posted by scottking over 7 years ago (Flag)

Thank you for comment Scott! Solar term may be for agriculture and haiku art, old people already know what happen in the term. It's very fit to sorting my observations. :)

Posted by harumkoh over 7 years ago (Flag)

Oh! We do share very similar solar terms in Japan and Hong Kong.
I have only started recording the wildlife (mainly insects) and find that it's surprisingly accurate!!
Especially the day before and after 驚蟄 (惊蛰) jīngzhé (awakening of the insects) ;-)

Posted by sunnetchan almost 7 years ago (Flag)

We learned lots from china, solar term is one of them. :)
