The gite that we are staying in has the most incredible garden and I have had such a lot of fun taking pictures. There are so many that I may have to show you in several postings! I go a little bit crazy when I get around gardens. Let's begin:
(The picture below is out of order because the internet connection went a bit crazy and mostly because I don't now how to move it to the right place. It is taken looking south from the north side of the pond.....more later on all that!!)
I have tried to take these photos in order as I walked around the garden, so as not to drive you too crazy. It's all pretty amazing isn't it!!
At the time of the farm, the pond was used by the cows for drinking, but the Leroys have enlarged it substantially since that time. There are carp in the pond and so it is impossible to grow lilies or other floating plants but apparently one can go fishing in the pond if arrangements are made with the owners!!
So far I have showed you one side of the garden and the back of property. Tomorrow I'll post some pictures of the front of the garden. And today there is sunshine. What a treat!
Just in case you might be interested in staying in the gite it is Gite de France, du Nord, number G2230. Have a look! You can contact the owners at firstname.lastname@example.org should you wish additional information.
