For a long time, there has been a deep local complex in my heart. I like the fragrance of soil, the rice flowers and wheat waves in the farmland, and the farmhouse under the shade of green trees …… the sky is just white, the smoke of the kitchen in the farmhouse rose up gently, rising over the quiet village. The virtuous peasant wife began a busy day, and they had to make a good meal at home, take good care of the chickens, ducks, geese, dogs, cats and cats raised in the yard, and maybe even raise pigs. They have to cook the pig food early in the morning, and carefully feed the big fat pigs which are simple and charming like feeding their own children. Those old men went to work in the fields before they had breakfast, or had breakfast happily with their families after finishing the chores in the yard …… they had several farm meals in the farm house. I really admire the skillful hands of the peasant wife! They will stew delicious rice in a big pot, stew kidney beans with potatoes in a big pot, or use a big pot to cook all kinds of cooking dishes with good color, flavor and taste in restaurants in the city. They use big pots to make all kinds of delicious food that you want to eat. Moreover, they won’t make rice cooked, paste cooking, and even make the room smoky. They will bring a meal to the dining table in time and take care of your guests in the city like their own families, you will eat with your sister at that farm table and break your belly. You will give up the idea of losing weight temporarily regardless of loosing and loosing your trouser pockets like in your own home, you will be happy in that farmhouse …… today’s farmhouse is not what it used to be. When you step into the farmhouse with the wooden door with door bolts opened by the owner with novelty, when you look around the corners of the farmhouse with searching eyes, when you listen to the owner of the house saying modestly that the cottage of the farm is not as good as the buildings in the city, you will find out accidentally: it turns out that the cottage of the farm is so clean and elegant! The same floor tile, the same white wall floor, the same TV computer, there will also be a few pairs of slippers outside the door of the inner room, but what is different from the city is that, you may see the photos of the whole family of the owner with frames on the glass board of the cupboard, especially the big photos of the young family will be put into the middle of all the photos, they tend to point to the grandson who smiled brightly in the photo and say to you that this is my nephew dog (note: The local people’s joke about their daughters and children), you will also see several bunches of violets smiling at you on the double-deck French window table …… you can walk out of the cottage after dinner in the farmhouse and experience the smell of the countryside in the yard. Outside the window of the cabin, there is always a fruit tree that can bear fruit, or a peach tree, an apricot tree, a jujube tree, or some other tree, but it always bears fruitful fruits to share with the owner when the crops are harvested. When you look at it, maybe that fruit tree is blossoming in a tree, maybe it is just a shade like a canopy, maybe you are lucky to catch up with the fruits which are full of branches like stars and tell you the story of autumn heavily …… the courtyard wall of the farmhouse cannot stop your sight, you can still see brothers next door carrying water to feed cattle in the yard, you can still see tractors parked not far outside the yard, and you can still overlook the vast cornfield outside the yard wall, looking back at the numerous farmhouses in the village, the lights are already dim. In a trance, you will not know whether you are in the world or fairyland …… the farmhouses, you are lingering in my dream!
