The Gardens of Villandry – part 1

April 29th, 2019

After touring the chateau at Villandry, we headed out the back to see the gardens from the walkway above. This tree lines walkway provides a nice view of the ornamental salons. These views from above are one of the best ways to appreciate these intricate gardens, the details aren’t as noticeable when you’re walking amoung the gardens. The tulips were just starting to show some color, so the garden wasn’t quite as colorful as it will be the rest of summer, but it was still oustanding.











Gardens like this are so difficult to capture in photos (as are many things). There’s so much detail in every direction that the camera simply can’t do it justice. Stay tuned, I’ll be possting more photos of the other parts of this garden in the next few days.

    The shadows you captured are really interesting! Another level of consideration in planting~
