Le directeur de l'Ecole Nationale du Paysage

This lovely statue and fountain stands in the King's Vegetable Garden as a tribute to A. Hardy, former director of the National School of Landscaping, which is situated next to the garden. As from today until Monday, VDP will be on automatic mode as I will be in Burgundy. Have a great weekend!

Cette jolie statue et fontaine s'élève dans le Potager du Roi en mémoire d'A. Hardy, qui fut directeur de l'Ecole Nationale du Paysage qui jouxte le potager. A partir d'aujourd'hui jusqu'à lundi, VDP sera en mode automatique. Pour ma part, je serai en Bourgogne. Bon weekend !

Perfect framing of the fountain, in particular.

The sky and wall make a lovely backdrop for this fixture. Nice day to shoot it!

No statues like that in my gardens (dang) even if my husband does call me "the princess." ;-)

I look forward to seeing photos from Burgundy.
