Friday Bench: Le Jardin des Ombres et du Repos

Part of the Garden of shadows and repose at Chaumont garden festival

The signage accompanying this garden says:

The Garden of Shadows and Repose invites visitors to sit and rest a while on its black hued benches or meditate in the shade of its bamboos- a welcome halfway stop-off on days when a fiery sun is beating down from above. Tree ferns, dense black clusters of perennials and purple New Zealand flax contrast with tender green lawns, drawing visitors into an elsewhere with close ties to the southern hemisphere.”

Garden realised by the teams of Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire.

      1. Oh do, you’ll love it! It’s not just the festival, there is so much more to explore. We only had an afternoon there, but could have easily spent 1 or more days. I was quite nervous about driving in France, but it turned out to be surprisingly easy. Have you seen my map of the trip? You’ll find lots of useful info in there as well 🙂

      2. Thanks Michelle. I’m just working my way through your posts now. I’ll look out for the map. Looks a fantastic trip. Great to have recommendations. Saves a lot of time. Thanks again. Karen x
