Former President Lee Teng-Hui‘s childhood home is located right here in Sanzhi. Always attracts many visitors. But last September, half the roof fell in after several days of very heavy rains. Well, a third of the roof to be more exact. The left third. Still not repaired. Multiple owners, all relatives, and as someone told me, everybody’s business has become nobody’s business. But every spring, the front is filled with pots of lilies. In flower now. Looking very beautiful!
“If thou of fortune be bereft, and in thy store there be but left two loaves, sell one, and with the dole, buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.” Wise words from John Greenleaf Whittier. If not hyacinths, then lilies will be a fine alternative.

I love the lilys – what a display.
