Moins ordonné que certains parterres à Versailles....mais c'est ainsi que j'aime les jardins en "fouilis".

Pars en paix, on surveille ton blog, que personne ne vienne voler tes photos.

J'ai eu l'occasion de visiter ces potagers sur les "Etangs Puants" asséchés dont il reste le Parc Balbi.

Je me souviens avoir photographié des pavots roses près des espaces dévolus aux élèves de l'école du paysage.

Il me semble que je reconnais sur mon montage ce bâtiment que tu montres (c'était à mes tout débuts de photographe et de bloggueuse) mais je n'y ai pas montré le pavot...

A bientôt Cieldequimper !

So colorful on a sunny day - the colors must be amazing in Versailles.

JM said...

Wonderful perspective!

By the way, we usually say 'abraços', just like that! :-)

I've been so busy at work I'm just catching up with some of my friend's posts. This immediately reminded me of Monet's poppies. How surprised I was when I saw that, at the right season, parts of France look just like that! Life imitating art imitating life.

Bonne semaine .

Les pavots sont de superbes fleurs malheureusement trop fragiles pour les frimas New Yorkais!!

Beautiful poppies. I love them so much. We had some wild ones that grew in our garden this year. I did not have the heart to pull them out with the weeds, so I let them grow.
