The Lingering Garden

We were in the Lingering Garden today. It took a while to explore, because it’s more than 5 1/2 acres in size. There are charming little courtyards, winding corridors, and a secret hidden garden with a gazebo and stone table. It also has the largest Tai Hu stone in any of the gardens we’ve seen, as well as an incredibly large collection of bonsai and potted landscapes. We met a group of Landscape Architecture students in the Master of Nets garden yesterday–a friend of one of the students found us in the Lingering Garden today, where her class was sketching. So I’m including a picture of me with my fan club!

Tomorrow we visit the Suzhou museum, designed by I.M.Pei, and the Hanahan temple.
