Gardens


I don't know what the name of these gardens is, but they were somewhere in Wuxi. The driver from the factory was instructed to take us here, but he didn't speak any English. The signage was mainly in Chinese - the only English near the entrance stated "Natural Site of Beauty" or something like that.


It was a lovely place to spend an afternoon. We didn't have enough time to explore the entire garden, but we saw plenty of beautiful things. There were rock gardens, water gardens and, of course, flower gardens. Each was surrounded by pavilions dedicated to Chinese arts - music, calligraphy...

Thanks, Halcyon! I'm not much for tagging but I do appreciate the gesture.

Quite impressive that you've been to most continents. I'm far behind in that respect and since I'm not much for flying (for all sorts of reasons) I suppose this won't be changing a lot. Then again, who knows...

Take care.

Well it's a 'site of beauty' alright — both natural and man-made!

I love Asian English, lol! And that includes Filipino English, heehee.

Ooh, you have a New Beetle? Cool! Don't forget to come to the Philippines!!! Okay, finish Australia first. How about Antarctica?

Eek at the tag! I'm going to have to be very careful about this one — I might reveal something that's not GP ;D
