Les jardins du Grand Trianon


Still last Sunday's pictures: the gardens of the Grand Trianon castle in the palace grounds, in their autumn splendour.

Encore des photos de dimanche dernier, les jardins du Grand Trianon dans le parc du château parés de leurs belles couleurs d'automne.

I think I'd appreciate more these beautiful gardens in autumn, than under the summer sun!

Ils sont jolis aussi ces jardins a l'automne. Je ne souviens pas y etre alle a cette saison.

I will never get over the rampant beauty of this place...I do want to go back when it's not so cold and take more time to wander about.

Beautiful photos, Ciel.

The topiary work throughout the palace grounds is so impressive. I am glad the republic preserves some of the glory of the monarchy.

I look at the garden and think of all the work that it must take to keep it looking so beautiful!

I was in the garden by the natural history museum in Paris. It was incredible. These gardens are such works of art and a pleasant place to stroll. Thanks for sharing.

Autumn splendor is right. The greens seem greener in the fall light.

Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. MB

I love pruning trees. I envy the guys who get to do it here!

how beautiful, the light is great and the colors and shapes of plants are dreamy.

Beautiful garden. AND I see some neat autumn colors there too! My friend in Nice says they don't have trees that change colors so you are lucky, I guess!

It must take an army of gardeners to maintain and care for the gardens. Nice shots.

Cieldequimper, j'ai du rester trop longtemps à réfléchir sous mon Olivier, au beau temps passé...Du coup, je suis en retard d'un post.
J'aime ces fleurs en fouillis (étudié et maitrisé par les pros de jardiniers). Ca donne de la vie à la nature.
