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.
