Tiger Hill and Landscape Penjing — Tiger Hill et Penjing de paysage

So … the other day I went to Suzhou. The people here, at the Shanghai botanical gardens, are very friendly and they are  doing their best to educate me (thus a trip to Suzhou). What an adventure! The next few posts shall be on Suzhou.

 Today, I was told I would spend about 2 weeks learning about landscape and rock penjing and this gave me the idea to post the pictures I took in Suzhou’s Tiger hill. 

To get to Tiger hill, in Suzhou, I took a 20 minutes of taxi in Shanghai to get to Hongqiao railway station, 30 minutes of high speed train to get to Suzhou, and another 20 minutes of taxi to get to Tiger hill.

 I spent half a day there and managed to only see the Penjing garden at a super fast pace. Granted I took over 250 pictures and I still managed to look at some nifty trees, I would have liked to spend the whole day there and study more. So really, if you are planning to go to Suzhou and you LOVE Penjing and gardens, plan at least 2 days. 

When I get back to Canada i will post more on Tiger hill. So for now, please enjoy Suzhou (as Wang Juan would say)!

Donc … L’autre jour, je suis allé à Suzhou. Les gens d’ici, au  Jardin botanique de Shanghai, sont très sympas et ils font de leur mieux pour m’eduquer sur le sujet du Penjing (de là le voyage à Suzhou). Quelle aventure! Les prochains affichages seront de Suzhou.

 Aujourd’hui, on m’a dit que je passerais environ 2 semaines à apprendre sur le sujet des penjings de paysage et des penjing de roches et cela m’a donné l’idée de publier les photos que j’ai prises à Suzhou, Tiger Hill.

Pour me rendre à Tiger Hill, à Suzhou, j’ai dû prendre un taxi pendants 20 minutes à Shanghai pour me rendre à la gare de Hongqiao, 30 minutes de train à grande vitesse pour me rendre à Suzhou, et encore 20 minutes de taxi pour me rendre à Tiger Hill.

  J’y ai passé une demi-journée et je n’ai  réussi qu’à voir que le jardin Penjing et ce à un rythme ultra-rapide. J’admets que j’ai pris plus de 250 photos et que j’ai quand même réussi à voir quelques arbres splendides, mais j’aurais aimé passer la journée entière à étudier  plus. Alors, vraiment, si vous envisagez d’aller à Suzhou et vous AIMEZ le Penjing et les jardins, prévoyez au moins 2 jours.

Lorsque je serai de retour au Canada, j’afficherais plus sur Tiger Hill. Donc, pour l’instant s’il vous plaît profiter de Suzhou (comme Wang Juan dirais)!

  1. Hi Mathiew,
    My name is Pauline. I’m a fellow Canadian, living in Sydney Australia, studying Penjing from my classically trained Lingnan teacher/Sifu Philippe Tot who trained in Hong Kong, and throughout China.
    He also managed the Penjing Gardens in Sydney for many years, but has since left to pass on his teachings through his school.
    I love all of your shots, and your blog which I stumbled upon today, and look forward to hearing more. I’m in the middle of giving Philippe’s site a complete overhaul (at http://www.penjing.com.au) – as I’m a web developer by day. But feel free to check out his work there, or on facebook. I think you’d have a lot in common.

    Look forward to hearing more soon.
    Regards,
    Pauline
