Anyway, I digress! This is a gardening blog after all, not one about history!
The potager or kitchen garden was fantastic, I'm so inspired! Have a look:
Espaliered apple trees border all of the vegetable beds and they are laden with fruit...
The jasmine arbours smell so heavenly!
The ornamental gardens were gorgeous too but I spent most of my time wandering around the potager
I really loved our visit to Chenonceau. But you know, where were the chickens??
On our way to our new lodgings (the farmhouse not having warm water nor even water that runs at all, bug infestation from the river, a state of unclean that had the children in allergies and a heater that would not turn off - in Summer it's way too hot for that! so we left) we passed through several gorgeous villages. I'll show you pics of the new digs later.
Gorgeous Montresor - one of my favourites
We had a lovely late afternoon visit in Amboise
Fields of poppies and sunflowers...
I could live in France - easily.
