Taiyuan, capital of North China's Shanxi province, has created a festive mood with flower decorations across the city to welcome the upcoming National Day holiday on Oct 1-7. 

This year's festive decorations consist of landscape flower bed arrangements at major road intersections, flower arrangements along main roads in the city, and the 32nd chrysanthemum exhibition of the city, according to Cao Xiaoning, a staff member of the Taiyuan garden and forestry bureau.

The city has set up three groups of landscape flower beds at the entrance of Wuyi Square and Moyi Garden east of the Yingze Bridge to mark the 73rd Anniversary of the Founding of the People's Republic of China. 

The landscape flower arrangement in each urban district is mainly based on ground planted flowers, with 28 groups of landscape flower beds, more than 500 flower bowls, over 4,000 flower boxes, and more than 1.6 million potted flowers set up.

The main venue of the chrysanthemum exhibition is located in the Twin Towers Park, where various chrysanthemum varieties over an area of about 7,000 square meters and over 2 million pots are on display for about a month.  

The sub-venue of the exhibition in Yingze Park highlights the new media art exhibition area at the south gate of the park, where laser equipment projects 100-meter-long images of chrysanthemum varieties on the road.
