Chengdu discovers the beauty of fall

COLORFUL fallen leaves will be kept in some downtown areas in Chengdu, capital of southwest China's Sichuan Province, as the local government plans to use them to beautify its urban landscape.

After public suggestions, Chengdu Urban Management Bureau yesterday unveiled a new regulation on sweeping up colorful leaves from gingko and fig trees, the city's news portal Website reported today.

Normally fallen leaves are swept up within two hours, but the bureau will work out how long they can be kept for their colorful foliage before decaying, said bureau spokesman Luo Chaojin.

The gingko and fig trees line 12 streets and six squares in the downtown area which are not heavily used by traffic.
