Jessie's parents were staying with her this month. She invited us to have lunch together. Last time when I saw her parents, it was on her wedding. After 10 years, her parents did not change much, only that her father dyed his hair white. We ate in a new fine Chinese restaurant（玬桂軒酒楼). Jessie's husband, Peter ordered food enough for 2 meals. Look at the table full of Hong-Kong tea style dishes. The picture was taken when we were 80% full. I did not know the price. It was Peter's treat.
We chatted in their house after lunch while kids were playing upstairs. Sitting in the living room, we saw their summer garden full of surprises.
There was a small pool with little water lilies just waking up from their winter long sleep, and under the shade of the siderock and leaves we saw gold fish chasing around. Peter said, sometimes cats caught fish from the pool. Standing by the side door, we witnessed one cat approaching slowly toward a piegon walking in the garden. It was very close but the cat missed the catch.
In the yard, there were maples, fruit trees, roses, herbs, and "Vegetables". It was hard to imagine that someone can put so many things in the yard without ruining the look and feel of a Garden. After visiting this garden several times, we realized that good hands and seasons bring surprises to the gardens.
