Scène bucolique dans le domaine de Madame Elisabeth


A real haven for bees and other insects is found in the grounds of Madame Elisabeth's Orangerie. It's a wonderful place for leaving the city behind for a little while! There is a reason for these wild flowers. I'll tell you tomorrow!

Un vrai hâvre pour les abeilles et autres insectes que le domaine de Madame Elisabeth. C'est un endroit fabuleux pour se vider la tête ! Il y a une raison à ces fleurs des champs, je vous la dirai demain !

Absolutely beautiful. A haven for photographer's too.

Jacob said...

But I want to know now! ;-)

Are they really "wild" flowers, or were they planted? Will you tell us that tomorrow?

Very pretty. I'll also be looking forward to photographs of bees and butterflies...

It is a lovely place.

It's delightful and seems a peaceful place to just sit and relax. I doubt the flowers will still be in bloom in October but perhaps it will still be green.

The large photo brings tears to my eyes - what a nice photo!

et au fond la petite maison dans la prairie ;o) en effet un endroit qui donne envie de se reposer et de tout oublier

What a beautiful and peaceful looking spot!! Could the reason have something to do with honey?

On voit de plus en plus de jachère fleuries et c'est tant mieux pour les insectes ; cependant au fil des ans les plantes sont de moins en moins variées, seules les plus costauds reviennent, il faut renouveler le semis.
En tous les cas, c'est très beau et aérien, surtout ici les cosmos blancs du 1er plan.

A les jachères fleuries moi je ne m'en lasse pas
je m'allonge à côté et je regarde les fleurs ^pousser

Such a pretty place. I love a mystery. Look forward to finding out the purpose of the wildflowers, other than being lovely to look at.

J’adore tous ces fleurs. C’est bien pour les abeilles d’avoir un parc a eux !

Wildflower meadows are so inspirational this time of year, don't you think? Very pretty. Now I have to wait to find out more. ;-)

I didn't know about Madame Elisabeth's Orangerie, only about the more famous Petit Trianon. This is great. It's lovely, and I can't wait to learn and see more!
