Mang Zhong (芒种), or Grain in Ear, is a period of time in June where many crops grains are mature and ready for harvest. It’s also a crucial time for rice planting in some places. In the literal meaning of this phrase, it’s a very busy time for farmers in harvesting and sewing!
In the figurative, it denotes that we reap what we sew. Our actions today will return as fruits of tomorrow.
This cool-toned rice-stalk golden chartreuse toasts the beauty of a mature crop with the youthful glow of a freshly sprouted seedling.
