Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #147: Gardens


This week, for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #147, Amy challenged everyone with the theme of garden.

I spent much of April and May so far trying to construct my own garden, implementing drip irrigation to save water and hope my plants will thrive under consistent watering while ignoring mom’s constant chastising of how I’m wasting my time. I have a design idea in my mind from watching hours upon hours of YouTube and those DYI shows on TV. Now I just need to conquer my procrastination and get it done.

Back to the theme for this week.

Gardens. This theme reminds me of a park I spent an afternoon in during my travel to China in 2017. My hometown in China is full of small community parks. This is one of the larger ones. If one is seeking Lunar New Year festivities, this is the place to be.

This park was built to commemorate Sun Yat-Sen, who coincidentally was born in the same town I was born in.

I visited early March 2017, spring is much earlier in my hometown than in Utah. I’m kinda envious of that sometimes because even now, in early May, I still cannot put my plants outside at night for fear of them freezing to death in the 40-degree temperatures.

Even on a workday, there are plenty of office workers taking afternoon strolls during their 2-hour lunch breaks and let’s not forget to mention the active oldies doing their exercises under the shade of the trees.

There are plenty to do in this park even for a tourist like me. I visited this park again during 2018. The changes in the landscapes never seizes to amaze.

  1. Thank you for the tour of this special and very beautiful garden in China. Your garden construction sounds like a big task. I’m sure you will enjoy once it’s completed. 🙂
