He is Zhan Fengyong, an uncle in 1976,
Since he was a child, he has lived in a small courtyard in the south of the Yangtze River.
When talking about childhood memories, many people immediately think of
It’s orange soda with glass marbles and 50 cents,
As for Lao Zhan,
But it is an old wall and a mottled wooden door.
I remember when I was a child, I lived in a small courtyard in the countryside,
In the evening, I shuttled and hid in the alleys with my playmates,
In summer, fall asleep listening to the stream flowing in front of the door.
However, with increasing age,
Like many childhood playmates,
Lao Zhan also left the courtyard,
Settled down a home in a high-rise building in the city.
However, childhood memories
But as time goes by, it becomes more and more precious.
Now, every time I think of that time,
Always make him unforgettable.
He came to Wuyi Dagong Village to investigate the project,
Walk to Wuyi’s mother river and get familiar with the riverside.
The clouds and mist rising from the distant mountains made the sky and the earth hazy,
The setting sun reflects on the surface of Shuxi River, against the green forest and blue sky,
The idea of ”it is better to spend the rest of my life here”,
Suddenly, it came to Lao Zhan’s mind.
At the Shuxi Riverside at that time, no one wanted to stay longer,
More than 20 duck and goose farms are distributed along the coast.
The sewage is directly discharged into the river, which is stinky and the water environment is deteriorating.
Coinciding with the government’s ecological reform,
The land was reclaimed for bidding, and Lao Zhan immediately signed up.
Unexpectedly, he was the only one to participate and successfully won the bid.
With nostalgia for childhood memories,
Lao Zhan slowly calmed down,
start building little by little
The courtyard in the south of the Yangtze River when I was a child in my mind.
From surrounding gardens to courtyard layout,
Most of them are designed and modified by Lao Zhan himself.
He loved calligraphy since he was a child and was deeply influenced by traditional culture.
He has his own unique views on architecture.
Small enough to buy nails, big enough to pick wood for a bed
He personally went to the building materials market to buy them.
Then ask old craftsmen to make it into the desired look,
Sometimes I even make it myself.
Lao Zhan thinks,
Every homestay owner is a designer,
Maybe not very professional,
But what is piled up brick by brick is the picture in the heart.
So, by the Shuxi River,
The once dirty farms have disappeared,
An ink painting with white walls and gray tiles appeared before people’s eyes.
He named it “One Water Room”,
Taken from the famous nineteen poems of Han Yuefu,
“The water is full of water, and the pulse is speechless.”
Walk along the riverside path, or go ashore by boat,
Slowly pushed open the courtyard door, paced in,
You can get a glimpse of the Jiangnan style in Yishuijian.
One side of the wooden pavilion is full of old objects of various colors.
It was Lao Zhan who mobilized all the relatives and friends around him
Found in the countryside of Wuyi.
Wooden doors and windows, beams
It is built from ancient wood soaked in hundreds of years of history.
Lao Zhan said,
These ancient objects are alive,
Carrying family dreams, local culture and local history.
Therefore, there are 18 rooms in one water room.
Different styles, unique ingenuity,
But they are mainly logs,
Rough temperature escapes from the annual rings.
Like table decorations, long table cases, camphor wood boxes,
Bamboo curtains, strange stones, a clump of wild chrysanthemums picked from the field,
The room is full of fragrance, full of antiquity.
free on weekdays,
Lao Zhan’s favorite thing to do is to drink tea, taste tea,
bedroom, study, hall,
Each room is furnished with a complete tea set.
There is also a tea room specially set up by the river,
Listening to the gurgling water,
The light tea fragrance is refreshing.
And out of the hall,
18 rooms are distributed in 3 courtyards,
They are connected by bluestone paths.
Both sides are covered with green bamboos, reeds,
The breeze blows across the water,
A touch of earthy smell mixed with green grass,
The whole person seems to be surrounded by nature.
As the sun goes down or the lights come up,
In the quiet of the garden
A sense of emptiness suddenly rose up.
With the disappearance of chicken farms in Shuxi River,
gradually regained its clarity.
Between the upstream and downstream, the most beautiful 900m scenery,
It happened to be all contained by a water room.
Linhe creates a water-friendly platform,
A square table, a few wicker chairs.
The distant sun shines on the water,
The emerald green everywhere is reflected in it.
Take a sip of local high mountain tea,
Watching the flowing water of Haohao Tangtang go eastward,
Drink a cup of tea and enjoy leisure.
Going down the river in a small boat with a black awning,
In and out of the ink and wash landscape, but there is no trace,
The lights on both sides of the bank are dimly lit,
Everything in the world seems to stand still at this moment.
And with the clarity of the river, on the forest path,
The fireflies also appeared slowly, one by one spreading their wings,
Light yellow light flickers and connects into a line.
Although their lives are only 7 days,
It seems that they are trying their best to release this little light,
Every light is faint,
But when added up, it is extremely shocking.
away from the city,
There are no high-rise buildings here, and there are no overpasses.
But there are ancient villages and ancient streets that have gone through the years.
Every morning, the sun shines into the other courtyard through the high wall,
Lily lily climbed the fence,
The clean, ethereal alba in the air,
Breaking through the silent village,
Clear and warm, everything is so beautiful.
