Villages in the Xushuguan town, Suzhou New District display their different appearances in the summer season.
Shituxiang village, although small in size, is dotted with small delicate gardens where green grass and blooming flowers conjure up a summery atmosphere.
To rest in the gardens' wooden corridor has become a routine activity for many local villagers.
Fitness facilities are also available here and even in the hot summer, villagers can take part in exercise in the cool shade of the trees.
Small gardens in Shituxiang village have become a favorite place for local villagers where they can take part in exercise, have a chat or just loiter away the long summer afternoon with a friend or two. [Photo/WeChat account: snd-szgxqfb]
