Chateau Val-Joanis, Pertuis, France, Part Two

A Collection of Watering Cans

A Nice Place for Lunch on a Cloudy Day!

Another birdhouse with the Espaliered Apples

I think Parsley in Bloom and Garlic Chives!
Cardoon or Globe Artichokes


The Sign on the Left Post says Fragile!

Elecampane! Have Always Wanted to Grow It!

French Roses in Celebration of the Herb of the Year!
The gardens of Chateau Val-Joanis were conceived by Cecile Chancel in 1978 and with the advice of garden landscaper, Tobie Loup de Viane, she created three terraces, the potager with vegetables, herbs and flowers,  the second terrace for flowers and the third terrace for ornamental grasses, trees and flowers.  It used stones salvaged from a Roman pool in an area protected from the Mistral wind.  It is a remarkable garden.  As you can see this is Part Two, so Part Three is on the way.  It is like a furnace outside.  The Herbal Husband soldiers through and I'm like a wilted lily!  Hope you had a great day.  Talk to you soon.
