Amid the gloom that the COVID-19 health crisis has brought upon the country, the pink field of Masungi Geopark has brought comfort and beauty to many.
The Masungi Geopark Project reforestation showed off their “pink fields” which are full of blossoming white turmeric plants. The conservation area, situated in the Southern Sierra Madre range in Baras, Rizal, has been known for its geological formations of Masungi Rock which has an elevation of 640 metres. But not only are the jagged heights worth visiting in Masungi Geopark, even the flora or plant life would easily captivate any visitor.
Recently, Masungi Geopark shared photos of their wide fields blooming in purple colors. The white turmeric plants have bloomed “ten-fold” according to them.
On Facebook, they wrote, “PINK FIELDS: Hundreds of white turmeric plants blossom in the Masungi Geopark Project reforestation site after a few days of rain. This rhizome is characterized by pink and yellow flowers with the scent of mango and is traditionally used as medicine and spice.”
“We saw several of these when we first arrived on the reforestation site – their green stalks and leaves seemingly unspectacular. This rainy season, they have bloomed ten-fold,” they added.
Even just online, many netizens were impressed with the beautiful blooms. A netizen wrote, “Amazingly beautiful!” A netizen also noticed, “Baka ito yata ang naggawa ng COVID-19 sa kalikasan. Luminis ang paligid. Kasi noong pumunta kami diyan last November 2018 ay wala pang ganyan tumubo.”
