拙政园

男:这里就是拙政园了.这里可以说是江南古典园林的代表.

雪梅:这么多湖,好像满花园都是水.

女:是啊,拙政园里的主要建筑都临水,而水又占了全园的五分之一呢.

雪梅:拙政园有多长时间的历史了?

男:有500多年历史了.这里先后被建成有钱人家的宅院啊、寺庙啊,到明朝时,取名为拙政园.

女:据说小说<<红楼梦>>里的大观园就是以这里为素材的.

雪梅:还真有点儿像颐和园.我听说颐和园里有些地方和苏州园林是一样的.

男:你知道这是为什么么?因为清朝的皇帝曾经来到这里,看到这里的造园艺术非常讲究,皇帝十分欣赏,所以在修建皇家园林时就照搬过去了.

女:雪梅,你知道么?在颐和园还有一个地方叫苏州街呢!

雪梅:我去过那儿.

男:你们看,这里就是远香堂,这里是整个拙政园的中部,站在这儿可以四面观景.

女:这儿一向以荷花著名,每年来赏荷的人特别多.

雪梅:中国人喜欢荷花是因为佛教的原因吗?

男:我想这并不完全是佛教的原因,中国文人一向喜欢荷花.

女:雪梅,你看.这就是西园,在西园可以看到很多有名的花草树木.

男:这里不光四季有花,还有专门用来赏花的房子.比如说玉兰堂就是用来看玉兰的.

雪梅:那这里是看什么花的?

女:这里是看山茶花的.

雪梅:我倒觉得这些松树和假山很好.

男:是啊.山茶花开的时候,和假山、松树相映,好像一幅立体图画一样.

雪梅:难怪皇帝看到后都要搬回去一些呢,我都想搬了.

男:"搬回去?"

雪梅:你不是说皇帝搬了很多,放到颐和园里吗?

女:"搬"?噢,雪梅.他说的"搬"不是搬家的搬,是"照搬"吧?
