I really should save this post for a week or two, but I just can’t resist sharing this gem right now. Those of you who were lucky enough to see the August 2008 issue of Gardens Illustrated were treated to a story about a stunning French garden called La Jardin Plume. This morning, I was searching for more information about it and found a link to the garden’s web site. Wow. That’s what I want my garden to look like when it grows up.
The site is mostly in French, but no matter: It’s easy enough to figure out how to navigate the site, and you can pick the botanical names out of the text. What you’re going for is the images, anyway: simply amazing. Check them out: La Jardin Plume. And oh my gosh, there’s a book about the garden as well, by the photographers: Joelle and Gilles Le Scanff-Mayer. It too is only in French, but you can see a few more photos on its Amazon.fr page. Enjoy!
