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.
