According to Chinese tradition, a garden landscape without poetry is not 
complete. Luckily, Lan Su is graced with a wealth of poetic 
inscriptions! Classical Chinese gardens – including Lan Su – are filled 
with poetic inscriptions as text, calligraphic ensembles, engraving,s 
and plaques. Poetry is one of the five elements, along with rocks, 
architecture, water, and plants, necessary for a comprehensive Chinese 
garden. Learn about Lan Su’s poetic couplets and inscriptions all month 
long with workshops, tours and poetry series featuring local and 
regional poets.

    /Thursdays at 2:00 pm: Poetry tours/
    /Saturdays at 3:00 pm: Peach Blossom poetry readings/
    /Sundays at 3:00 pm: Listen to the Fragrance Chinese heritage poetry
