Humble Administrator's Garden # 2

 

First laid out in 1509 AD, the garden's scenery is focused on a central pond with various buildings of pavilions,terraces,chambers and towers located by the water or on hillocks in a natural, unsophisticated,and appropriate composition. The garden is most representative of Chinese classical gardens in the Ming Dynasty.

The Humble Administrator's Garden covers 4 hectares in northeast Suzhou. It is the largest garden of the city and a typical example of the art of horticulture south of the Changjiang river.

So peaceful, Aussie.
Aussie: Thanks chad of course the only thing missing is those little darlings along the paths.
What a peaceful spot to sit and contemplate or read a book and enjoy a coffee.
Aussie: It wasn't that peaceful, wall to wall tourists. Waited patiently to get some shots minus most of them or aimed up the waterways
Beautiful capture of this serene place. I like the soft tones!
Aussie: Thank you Richard
