    Description 
    The Garden of Residual Grains was built in the Qing Dynasty. It belonged to a salt merchant in Yangzhou in the period of Emperor Guangxu. 16 years after the founding of the Republic of China, it was sold to a painter called Wu Daiqiu. Now it belongs to his son Wu Mu who is the president of the Wu Style Painting Research Association. This residence is divided into three parts; the foyer, the sedan hall and the main hall. The inner building and the garden hall are in very good shape, but another garden in the northern part of the residential area has been long since deserted. The Garden of Residual Grains is located in the east of the garden hall and has an area of 140 square meters. It creates the feeling of having many levels by unique utilization of the space in the half hall, rockery, pond, and also placement of flowers and trees. Originally called “Dong Yuan” meaning “East Garden”, the Garden of Residual Grains was renamed by its former owner Wu Daiqiu after lines from some ancient poetry. The garden’s entrance is a brick archway, followed by a rockery barrier. A pond is placed in the centre of the garden, and there is more traditional rockery by the north shore of the pond. Following the steps in the cave of the rockery, one comes to a pavilion with a view overlooking the whole garden. The pavilion is equipped with a niche bookshelf and a side door leading west to the garden hall, thus connecting the residential building directly with the garden, something that is unique mong the Suzhou gardens. A path rings around the pool, with winding ups and downs. The garden is green with Elm, Osmanthus, Lamei, Ficus Pumila and more trees. There’s a giant Yulan tree in front of the garden. The rockery stacks up a small spring that never dries up even with a 0.6 meter rise above the ground. The wall is embedded with 5 square meters of engraving stones. The garden has been designated a restoration project and is protected as a Suzhou cultural monument.

    景点介绍
    残粒园始建于清代,光绪年间为扬州盐商姚姓所有。民国16年后,归画家吴待秋(别号栝 苍亭长),现为其子、吴门画派研究会会长吴木宅园。住宅分三路,门厅、轿厅、大厅、后楼及花厅都较完整,宅北部一花园早废。残粒园在东路花厅东侧,全园面积140平方米,但能利用空间将半厅、假山、水池、花木组成曲折高下有层次的景面。原称东园,后吴待秋取唐杜甫句“香稻啄残鹦鹉粒”意,命名“残粒园”。由“锦窠”砖额洞门入园,过湖石峰屏障,见水池居园中央,池岸北靠墙角掇湖石假山,进山洞循石级盘旋而上,有半亭一角飞翘,端跨山巅,取浙江栝苍山名,称为栝苍亭,可俯观全园景色。亭内有壁龛书橱,侧门西通花厅,从内宅楼层可通花园,在苏州园林中为仅见。园中小径环池,蜿蜒起伏。榆树、桂花、腊梅、薜荔等花木藤萝绿被全园。园前有合抱广玉兰。花厅庭院有湖石叠成小天池泉眼,高出地面0.6米而终年不涸。壁间嵌有书条石5方。1980年被列为修复项目和保护对象。
