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 cruise the French waterways with my husband four or five months a year, and write fiction and poetry. 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

  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… 😦

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