Les pots de fleurs à Trianon

Flowers Petit Trianon Versailles
What you see here are flower pots. You will of course notice that they are buried in the soil. This is how royal gardeners kept the flower parterres of Trianon castles fresh looking. As soon as the flowers would wilt, they could be easily replaced! Naturally, the traditions are being upheld by the palace gardeners, here at Petit Trianon castle!

Ce que vous voyez, ce sont des pots de fleurs. Rien de bien extraordinaire si ce n'est qu'ils sont enterrés. C'est ainsi que les fleurs aux Trianons pouvaient aisément être remplacées dès qu'elles fanaient et les traditions au château sont maintenues ! Nous sommes ici au Petit Trianon.

Okay, in the above shot you are looking at Petit Trianon castle. Turn around and the flower parterres continue looking towards VDP's favourite little marvel, the French pavilion below (which you had recently seen here).

Alors, dans la photo ci-dessus, vous regardez le Petit Trianon. Si vous vous retournez, les parterres fleuris continuent vers la petite merveille préférée de VDP, le pavillon français ci-dessous (que vous aviez vu récemment ici).

Makes sense to plant with pots, I guess.

The architecture and the gardens are stunning alike. Beautiful shots, Ciel!

Love the castles, of course, and the pots in the soil is a good idea.

J'ai déjà vu cette façon de planter de l'autre côté de la Terre ... ce n'était pas par souci de remplacer les fleurs fanées, mais pour que les plantes ne prolifèrent pas trop ou par simple paresse.

That's a good trick to keep the gardens looking fresh! Love all the bright colors. :)

The gardens are absolutely exquisite Ciel. the gardeners do the most amazing job, so much hedge trimming etc. I recognize some of those gorgeous flowers.

I love the flowers. Everything is so dry here now that it looks quite awful. Some rain is long overdue but we have barely got any clouds yet :(

James said...

I love the second photo!

The gardeners are geniuses, no wonder they always look beautiful. Neat how your photographic perspective changes the look - the last photo looks like wild flowers.
