I'm jealous that the grass is so green!

the landscaping is very lovely!

Bob Crowe said...

There was a creative landscape designer. The variety of trees is visually pleasing. This is a very good photograph, soft and spring-like.

Jack said...

Each tree or bush is shaped differently, some pruned formally and some natural.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

That tree on the right is awesome, it's perfectly unnatural.

What a lovely photo. It does look like spring. The picture is rather misty in the middle. Was it raining? We have snow, so rain sounds like a very good thing!

Beautiful image Ciel, so symmetrically composed as you follow the line of trees down the pathway.

The perspective that you chose is very challenging. You captured it perfectly...love it. Merci.

Thérèse said...

Rudement bien entretenu.
Notre maison aurait bien besoin d'un tel traitement!

Olivier said...

je trouve qu'avec cet arbre, cela fait un peu jardin japonais

Dave said...

I love those shaped yew trees. Your previous pic of the elderly person crossing the courtyard is a good one.

So very pretty! Looks like a lovely place to stroll. By the way, I am proud to announce the world is free from the hassles of Doug's word verification :^) Yeah!

The tree in the foreground reminds me of a crabapple.

JM said...

The cone is pretty cool but the natural shape of the blooming tree is awesome!

My post is very French today. Not sure Émile Zola would like it. :-)))

I'm unable to e-mail you. The link on your profile page is not working: "The user is not 'properly' registred"... whatever this means! LOL! Here's mine: mendonca.jats@gmail.com

By the way, the photo you asked for was taken in Schaprode:)

i really love the cone-shaped one in the background.

Virginia said...

Oh I love these. I have thought it would be fun to do a book photographing all the ways the French have for pruning trees and shrubs. Maybe we can do it together!
