In the main town:
THERE was cloud pruning here everywhere you looked. Flowers and more flowers. But the old council standards such as marigolds, busy lizzies and red salvias – very regimented planting in great contrast to the aesthetics of a traditional Chinese garden.
This new town was built on the edge of a wetlands area alongside a river.
Our hotel abutted this wetland area and we could walk along an old road to see the marsh and the small-holding of a peasant who clearly still made his living from river fishing and farming a few vegetables.
The rain absolutely poured and poured that day so these photos have a lovely wet look to them… very atmospheric when photographing a wetland area!
