A little stroll through a French Garden in late August


A garden, created with passion
  by our dear French friends Isabelle and Robert,
 located just around the corner of La Pouyette.

We were invited yesterday for "un petit apéritif"
 to end a summer Sunday in a relaxing atmosphere.
 

a few simple snap shots of
 
"Le Jardin d'Isabelle"

  3. Oh my goodness Karin ,
    How beautiful. I love it because it is very natural and the tree against the wall is wonderful. A garden that gives so much inspiration. XXXX

  4. Utterly beautiful!! What a treat to tour this lovely and very neatly kept garden. And the potager is delightful. Now I desperately want a country garden to grow vegetables, etc. Thanks so much, Karin. Cheers, Loi

  5. Le mot jardin semble si pauvre et faible devant ce que je vois ici Karin! C'est plus que beau, c'est formidable vraiment.J'adore les potagers meme s'ils sont miniscules, ce n'est pas le cas ici.
    Merci et a bientot!

  9. Just SO wonderful, Karin. I wonder if I could achieve this on my property? Maybe if I had 25 years to see it all come to fruition. But, it still wouldn't be the same would it? Without the lovely home, and without France. Looking forward to seeing you for BIO in September. xxxx's
