The Old crabapple orchard in Wenhua dian ( Hall of Literary Brilliance).
Memory Palace of Trees Video#7 Old Crabapple by Matthew Hu
…..Haitangyijiu “海棠依旧” is from a poem of Song Dynasty, it means Crab apple tree is as usual. The meaning is quite simple, however, by reading out these words some may recall the poem 如梦令and story of the female poet Li Qingzhao李清照.
Matthew Hu (胡新宇) is founder of the Courtyard Institute.
