The owner Gu Jingfang, or "Sister Xiaomei", has an age of 57 and currently lives in the Huaguangcheng Community.

 

To turn the 45-square-meter space into a dream garden, she has invested 3 years and 150,000 yuan, and her dream finally comes true.

 

There are hundreds of flowers in the garden, most of which are various hydrangeas, denoting union, harmony, and happiness.

Besides, it is surprising to see that the most expensive flower in the garden is planted at the door. It's a "Mary Milton" (a kind of Hydrangea), worth 20,000 yuan. "Music alone is not as good as the music. Of course, the best flowers need to be enjoyed together. Even if one day I'm not here, this flower still blooms for people," she said. 

 

The China Starjasmine is crawling all over the balcony, making it an Eden in miniature. Small ornaments in the garden, such as flower ware and iron products with various animal shapes full of delicacy are selected carefully by Xiaomei.


 In order to take care of the garden, she hasn’t traveled away in recent years. In her mind, taking care of these flowers and plants means a lot.

The garden tints Xiaomei’s life with poetic romance. When free, her daughter would play the guitar in the garden, the 3-year-old grandson sets up building blocks for himself and Xiaomei is immersed in reading magazines.

In front of the garden locates a delicate blue chair. "People are embarrassed to come in though I always leave the door wide open. So I think a chair at the garden gate would provide them a seat to have a rest," she said. 

 

Gradually, the senior citizens will pass by here to enjoy the flowers from time to time, sitting for around half an hour. The picture touches Xiaomei deeply.

During the outbreak of the epidemic this year, Xiaomei opened his own douyin (the Chinese version of the Tik Tok) account to record the daily situation of the garden. It is out of her expectancy that the number of fans reached 15,000 in just two months. A small video would welcome about 200,000 attention. Even netizens in Shanghai and Hangzhou are attracted to come to have a look at the garden.

 

Influenced by Xiaomei, more and more people in the community are into planting. Xiaomei has set up a group of flower friends in the community, sharing her flower cultivation experience, flower seedlings, and even some garden decoration experience. There is a mailbox on the gate post of Xiaomei’s garden, which is used to place some pruned flowers, easily accessible for the neighbors in need at any time.

"I'm going to make my life a poem and my garden a picture." On the summer weekend, with a sun umbrella, Xiaomei drinks tea in the garden, enjoying the peaceful moment in the garden.
