Suzhou Yuanlin Hen You Ming

This was a line that we practiced constantly in the US. "Suzhou's gardens are very famous." Pimsleur, one of our Chinese learning programs, used this phrase over and over. This was the first time I had ever heard of Suzhou, about three years ago, sitting in the car.

So, the other day, as we were about to enter the Humble Administrator's Garden, the largest of the Suzhou gardens, Daddy kept saying, "Suzhou yuanlin hen you ming."

The flowers and lakes, bridges and rocks, really deserved the hours we spent there. I managed to get a couple of photo shoots while Z ran as fast as he could up and down the rocks.

I have to say this garden had the most beautiful flowers of the day, and Zhouzheng Yuan definitely deserves its you ming title. I guess the Qings got the flower/lake/island/bridge combo just right.
