Plum Garden @ Xinbeitou

Don't ask me why it is called Plum Garden
 (probably the yard is full of plum trees long time ago),
 another official city landmark, built around 1930,
a summer house of a famous calligrapher Yu Yo-ren.

A Japanese wooden style structure
with its spacious courtyard surrounded by Trees.

As usual, I didn't capture all the writings about the history :)

Lots of windows in the building. The scene is so neat and clean.

Hi Lani! I love all of the windows in this beautiful building ... I'd like to stop and rest for a while on one of those benches!

So ... why do they call it Plum Garden?
Sorry, I couldn't resist!!! :=}

The use of wood makes this building so pretty. So many windows...so many views of the courtyard. Lovely capture.
