I will ask a leave from work tomorrow. Dammit, I have to work on Saturday and if ask for a leave ,the Accountant will cut my wage. OK, I don't care. I need rest and I want to start my gardening.
My parents are farmers in the countryside for all their lives. They fed up two sons and two daughters. I am the youngest one.They still live in the hometown with my elder brother. Now they do not do much farmwork now. My mother feed two pigs and some chickens and one duck. The cats eat many of the neches. so there left only 15 also.
my father did not agreed with feeding any pigs or chicken, but My mother knows my wife and I like the countryside growed up pork and chicken. hehe. animal for eat, not pets.
But my brother works in the seaside city with his wife just leave his two boys to my parents to look after.
I come back home about 2 or 3 weeks. I know my mom always want me back home and stay with her.
It is about 40 minutes by bus to the countryside house. It was built for many years but rarely live in it.
still live in the old house. The old house was rebuilt last year. I will take a photo about that kind of Chinese traditional old house. and some photos of the new house.
I will not here for 2 days and will come back with much photos about the wild land.Also I will take some photos of my parents and nephews.
I will do some tiding work on the land if it not rain. then make some design to the garden.
then I need my frinds here to give me some advices. OK?
I will take my little daughter with me. See you guys next Monday. I have to leave and catch the bus.
Love you guys here. God bless you all.

PS: Chinese farmers do not like gardening. Because they deel with nature all their lives and
and most of them lived a hard life on the land during the passed many years. So many of morden farmers prefer to enjoy the leisure time do some funny gambling or something else like watch TV. Just do not like to make the yard beautiful and tide enough.Maybe Chinese still live a hard life. Many of them still cook by firewood not gas and rare use aircondition.

Great blog! My dad & I visited China last year, we enjoyed our visit very much. My favorite area was Chen Lu, where a large quanity of pottery is made. It doesn't matter how old children are, a mother always prefers having them close! Have a blast in the countryside ~Andrea
