Delicate filigrees of rime cover trees on Feb 22, lining roads by the Songhua River in Jilin city, in Northeast China's Jilin province. Due to Jilin's unique natural conditions, the rime in the city lasts a long period of time – much to the delight of residents and visitors. It is known as being one of the four natural wonders of China. [Photo provided to gojilin.gov.cn]
