Paroles de Jardiniers

Saturday was a gorgeous spring day in Madame Elisabeth's domain for the gardening event 'Words of gardeners'. Still walking at the pace of a limping snail, VDP enjoyed looking at this bouquet making workshop where concentration (and sustenance) were required! VDP would have liked to make it to the palace where Alain Baraton, head palace gardener, was organising a tour of Marie-Antoinette's domain, but couldn't have walked for so long.

Samedi il faisait un temps de rêve pour les "paroles de jardiniers", ici dans le domaine de Madame Elisabeth où un atelier de confection de bouquets était organisé, auquel VDP s'est rendue en boîtant à la vitesse d'un escargot ! VDP aurait aimé pouvoir assister à la promenade avec Alain Baraton, jardinier en chef au château, mais n'aurait pas pu marcher aussi longtemps.

Roses are always beatiful. Good luck with the knees....anti inflamatories and rest helped mine.

lovely ~
i enjoy arranging flowers, very much. Sorry to hear that something has happened to you, i hope it is not too painful and that you heal swiftly!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

It's good to hear you are up and about, even if at a snails pace. It looks like everyone was having a good time. I leave the flower arranging to my wife, I'm not so good at it.

Lowell said...

Not my cup of tea, but I can imagine this would be fun - to learn how to make bouquets. Were you able to partake or just watch and absorb pertinent info?

Glad you are able to be up and about a little bit anyway. You'll probably be jogging around the palace pretty soon!

VP said...

I hope your speed will increase soon, but your eye for good pictures is still very, very good!

Lois said...

Very pretty! I hope you are able to get around better soon.

Halcyon said...

At least you were able to get out and about a little bit. Looks like the bouquet making was enjoyed!

Loree said...

That's a shame. Hope you'll be walking around at your old pace soon. Interesting shots.

Jack said...

What a nice event. I'm sorry that your healing is going slowly.
