I remember my first sight of the flower beds at the palace...unbelievable! I took so many photos. And I can see they are constantly changing in shape.

That garden must be a full time job. It's beautiful.

It is beautiful and remarkable, Ciel. It is hard imaginine how much work it takes to maintain these gardens.

Dianne said...

Pretty gardens - love those low growing flowers.
How fortunate you are Ciel to live so close to the chateau.

Lovely photo..I am reading a book about Marie Antoinette and just read about the famous Labyrinthe which was renamed later...it must have been great fun to design and build these beautiful gardens for the King and his court! The chateau belonged to all of France then and all were welcomed so long as they wore proper attire. If they could not afford it, it was lent to them at the chateau.

encore un jardin que j'ai envie d'ebouriffer! lespetits massifs fleuris lui donnent un air moins coincé ceci dit. Et malgré tout, bravo au jardinier!

Bon dimanche à toi!

These gardens are beautiful. Is it also a walkable labryinth as well? How lovely to walk it with the beauty of the flowers.

Ciel, slap with a wet noodle, but I must say that although your image looks fabulous, my impression is that the flowers are a bit hodge-podge...? Could just be my taste in formal gardens.
