The Sun Garden & Water Garden at Villandry

May 6th, 2019

After apprecaiting all the lettuce seedlings and the greenhouse, we made our way across the top of the property to the water garden and the new sun garden. The water garden is a large pond/lake, complete with a pair of swans. Compared to the rest of the garden, it’s very simple. Only lawn, water and a few box balls in containers. The walkways are gravel, which crunch nicely underfoot (a favorite sound for me). Then we made our way up a small hill to the new sun garden, which is a lot like American botanical gardens. Since this area is dominated by shrubs and perennials, it was fairly dormant when we were there.
















The pollarded lime trees are a dominate feature in this garde and are quite stunning. No doubt they look lovely when they are leafed out, in winter their skeletons create such drama, especially in their shadows.
