Several months ago, Yang invited her mother to stay for a while. But after just a few days, her restless mother began to do things to kill time. She unexpectedly removed all colorful flowers and plants and replaced them with tomatoes, coriander, shallot, garlic and ginger.

While she was engaged in her acts of garden vandalism, the foreign son-in-law was busy at work and had no idea what she was up to. When he had time to have a look at them on March 18, he just couldn't believe his eyes — his garden has turned into vegetable fields.

"Are you ok?" Yang comforted her husband who was totally at a loss. The man said nothing but just looked off into the distance.
