Beautiful and Relaxing

Beautiful and Relaxing

Tai Fu Tai Mansion, Hong Kong view map

Viewed from the study room,
this courtyard is elegantly decorated.

Above the stone table and benches,
a pair of Chinese couplets describes a beautiful and relaxing scenery…

A few newly dropped plum blossoms on the ground that not yet cleaned up by their servants;
the bird songs from the bamboo forest make people feel sleepy.

I could imagine how relaxing the Mans' family were sitting on the stone benches, and
enjoying Chinese tea with their guests.
