Decoding the Gardens of Suzhou Summary

Wow, what a trip! Today marks 5 weeks back from Suzhou, and I’m still processing so much of what I saw. It was glorious to be able to think, post, and talk about nothing but gardens for a week! From the moment I returned, it was right back to the craziness of everyday life, balancing client projects, elementary school activities and lessons, and home repairs. I can’t believe five weeks have flown by so quickly! There are so many pictures, videos, and notes I took about the gardens that I want to gather together to share with you, but I’m going to start by summarizing the posts on different subjects here. These are probably not all going to be in perfect order. As I add (or finish all the drafts I started on my trip!) more posts, I’ll update the list and get everything properly sorted. I hope you enjoy this peek into these amazing classical gardens! Please be sure to leave your comments, I’d love to hear what you think.
