As I was thinking about what to post today, I thought it would be nice to share with you some of the beauty of France – especially after the horrible events in Paris this weekend. (My Garden Wilson’s brother and sister-in-law were in Paris at the time, but they were safe in their hotel when the attacks occurred; and they were able to fly home to the United States the next day. Thank the Lord!) Facebook profile photos are sporting the French flag overlay, so I thought I’d post some photos of beautiful French gardens today.
I love the symmetry of classic French gardens, don’t you?
Look at these beautifully sculpted bushes in this garden in southwest France.
There are so many gardens at Chateau Villandry, I had a difficult time choosing one photo to share. I do think I like the Love Garden best, though.
Not all gardens in France are formal. This beautiful garden in Provence is much less formal, even in its symmetry.
I love country gardens, and France has her share. Here is a French cottage in Normandy with beautiful landscaping.
I love how the French use their stone houses as a palette for beautiful flowers. The flowers and home become one to the viewer.
I hope you enjoyed this small taste of the gardens of France. Vive la France!
