Sunday Stills: Flower Gardens



The Sunday Stills challenge this week was ‘Flower Gardens’.  This sequence of photos has been taken as we’ve navigated the River Saone at Chalon-sur-Saone, in three different years.   This kind of regimented planting isn’t everyone’s idea of a pretty flower garden but you have to admire the skill, patience and precision involved.  Click on the link for other collections.


About Sandra

I used to cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and wrote fiction and poetry. Now I live on the beautiful Dorset coast, enjoying the luxury of being able to have a cat, cultivating an extensive garden and getting involved in the community. I still write fiction, but only when the spirit moves me - which isn't as often as before. I love animals, F1 motor racing, French bread and my husband, though not necessarily in that order.

  1. Sandra, Great photos. They remind me of the floats where everything is made of flowers. This is the first I’ve ever seen a whole garden planted that way. 🙂 —Susan


  2. Wow, now that is dedication!


  3. I prefer the cliche “English garden” but I can respect the work that goes into something like this.

      There’s what I’d call an ‘English garden’ close our moorings at Pont de Vaux, all cosmos/cornflowers/poppies. It’s so beautifully undefined, fluffy, nebulous. I’ve kept saying I’ll go back when I’ve got my camera with me but you know how it goes… 😦

    It must be done by someone with OCD. Nice photos. Lucy

    Nice garden and well taken


I'd love to hear your views; it reassures me I'm not talking to myself.
