I’m just going to post pics of the lovely Jardin des Martels. We spent hours wandering the many gardens, including water gardens and an animal farm.
Welcomed by dancing water.
Yellow fall color is strong against fading purple blooms.
Purple surviving in the shade. This palette really seems French to me!
I offer more garden photos here, to reduce the homepage load time, a little anyway:
Red fall color.
And speaking of red, oh how the bees love it!
It looks like a Monet model! I do actually plan to paint this one.
Welcome to water world.
Lily pads of all kinds.
Note the frog…I’d love that spot, too.
Frogs weren’t the only animals: llamas, ponies, goats, sheep, cows…
and my favorites.
I would love to visit the gardens again when they open in the spring. It should be a whole new place!
