 - The Humble Administrator's Garden -






The "HUMBLE ADMINISTRATOR'S GARDEN" is much bigger than the "GARDEN OF THE MASTER OF THE NETS" ,- maybe the biggest of the Suzhou gardens -, since it covers about five hectares.
It was constructed in the early 1500s , which also makes it much newer.

We ,- Kit Yu and I -,  arrived quite late in the afternoon , so not only time was running out , but also the light,  which resulted in a most inadequate exploration of this huge area , but still I managed to get some shots before it was too late - - -

The "Humble Administrator's Garden" is bigger, but certainly not better than the "Garden of the Master of the Nets" ,- so we did not return for more impressions , which might be an injustice to this great classical garden - - -

But maybe another time???  I hope so - - -
