CHINA ~Shenyuan Garden~

Got two great official cards today! Another lighthouse from Germany and a beautiful garden from China...

The Shenyuan Garden is found in the Yanghe Hutong at Yan'an Road in Shaoxing. During the Southern Song Dynasty it was a private garden owned by the Shens. Inside the garden is a pool in the shape of a gourd, and the pool is surrounded by a number of buildings erected during the Southern Song Dynasty, including a tiny brogue fashioned out of stone slabs, a pool-side artificial mountain and a well.
