Sun Rui, a poet of the Song Dynasty, had described the life of residents along the banks of Taihu Lake in his Poem of Old Fisherman and XuanZhenzi, who had no need to worry about the living since there were no natural calamities and man-made misfortunes. They enjoyed a stable life that everybody was admiring. The scene described by Sun Rui is so true to life that we read the poem and we see the picture in our mind. Back in the Song Dynasty, it was a central place for agriculture, fishery and sericulture. In addition to rice, wheat, rapes and other major crops, people also developed sericulture, embroidery and fishery. It was true that “every household bred silkworms and every girl embroidered”. This way of living has continued so far.

The Poetic Taihu Lake
诗意太湖
宋代诗人孙锐在其《渔父词和玄真子》一诗中,对当时太湖沿岸居民的生活做了如上描述。他们衣食无忧,无天灾人祸之虞,生活稳定,令人称羡,至今读来仍觉得栩栩如生,近在眼前。远在宋代,这里就是农业、渔业、养蚕业的中心地域。当时除种植水稻、三麦、油菜等主要作物外,还进行养蚕业、刺绣工艺、打鱼等,可谓“家家养蚕,户户刺绣”。这种生活方式一直延续到今天。
Culture 西京湾的文化
Culture of Xijing Bay
西京湾所在的半岛之地,历来以水稻、三麦、油菜等传统农作,以及槐树、山茶花、青枫等多样种植为基础。其中大连村有着“槐树庄”的美称。眺望镇湖西头,清水淙淙流畅,百姓吉祥富足。太湖度假花园、上海交警培训基地、上海三枪集团疗养基地,一段段旧闻轶事,令人寻踪遐思,乐享苏式生活,久久不忍远去。

The peninsula where Xijing Bay locates has long developed rice, wheat, rapes and other traditional crops, as well as planting of Chinese scholar tree, camellia, and Japanese maple. Dalian Village is reputed as “Village of Scholar Tree”. Overlooking the west of Zhenhu, we see gurgling water and residents with peaceful faces. Lakeview Park Resort, Shanghai Traffic Police Training base, Shanghai Threegun Sanatorium, the old anecdotes or stories make people pursue reverie. Yet, the Suzhou lifestyle is lingering in our mind.
