Full Record of the Fairy Tree House in Yun Feng Mountain
By Lin Zhong Xiao Yue
The first time I got to Yun Feng Mountain is just in the blooming season of lavender. I still remember the refreshing fragrance today. And this time when I learned that the new built Tree Houses were putting into use at the beginning of August, I immediately had the urge to experience. Then I got the second chance to get to Yun Feng Mountain.
I surfed on the official website of Yun Feng Mountain and learned that the Tree Houses were ready to meet its visitors. Giant Garden, Fantasy Island, Prince Frog, Little Red Hat, Alice, Pinoquio, Little Prince's Rose Garden...all those fairy tales we were crushed on in our childhood came to the Fairy Tree Houses with their special breath. Each of the tree houses is like the planet of some single one. Staying in the kind cypress tree houses with the marvelous natural scenes around, watching sunrise with morning fog and sunset in the last rays, you can see the beautiful sunset without moving your chair and just turn around.
In the afternoon of a Saturday, I drove for about two hours to Yun Feng Mountain. The air is so fresh. The blooming season has been past. But the mountain is still filled with pale Lavender fragrance.
The housekeeper help us carry the luggage and walk up to the mountain in the wood walking path.
The one we lived is called Little Red Hat. There are two floors with one double bed each floor. Four people can accommodate here. The rooms have unique and elegant settings and decorations. Entering the room you can feel the rosin, which makes you fresh. Seeing the red cloak near the window, I recall the childhood story Wolf Grandma. And suddenly, all childhood memories flooded into my mind. On each bed, there is a letter written by the master and two cute box with chocolate inside. Just seeing them will make you feel sweet. On the backside of the letter, there is hand-painted lavender.
In another tree house named The Frog Prince, giant trunk of the pine comes from the floor and reaches out of the roof. The outside part of the pine still has thick and heavy leaves. The inside part of the pine looks like a special decoration of the house. This house is suitable for three people.
We left the luggage in the room and get down the mountain to Ming Yuan. Turning waterwheel, blooming water lilies and green grassland are all against the delicate brick and tile construction of Tang and Song style in Ming Yuan. We sit under the Wisteria flower and have our afternoon tea. A cup of ice lavender tea, pieces of lavender cookies and Taiwan pineapple cookies, what a joyful afternoon tea! Looking up to the fruit pod of the Wisteria flowers, I begin to imagine the beautiful scene in Spring. I will come here in Spring when Wisteria flower blooms.
We chat late in Ming Yuan. And when we leave, we find the night of Ming Yuan is also very beautiful when we look back.
We walked back to our tree house. On both side of the path, there are enough lights which make the path bright. And it's amazing that we can see clearly the butterfly and complete cicada slough beside the walking path.
In the next morning, the birds' song wakes me up from my dream. I go out and have a big breath of the fresh air. What a wonderful morning!
