Les Merveilles du Jardin de Cadiot

Karen and I spent yesterday afternoon at the gardens of Cadiot. We've not visited this late in the season before and certainly not following two months without any significant rain and temperatures which at times have spiked to the upper end of the 30's.












Just before I was about to publish, I came across this TV clip from Télévision Française, TF1 which shows Cadiot earlier in the year - worth a play!

    1. Thanks. Some rain wouldn't go amiss mind. All the same, nice way to spend a September afternoon.

  2. Gorgeous jardin Rob! Mind you, yours is looking pretty good too, in spite of the heat. I'm impressed.
    I've got sod all fruit and vegetables this year because of our rain combined with my dodgy knee! I ended up not doing much other than be glued to the Olympics and Paralympics, only venturing out for brief forays between showers!

    1. At least the rain hels off for the olympics. Karen and I were glued to it.

      You should send me some of your rain,

  3. Lovely! I adore that blue table with the pots. Are those yews trimmed up into shapes?

    Three more weeks. Paris.

    1. Those yew are trimmed.

      Only three weeks, exciting.

      I like the stuff around the terraces too.

  4. Beautiful. So different from anything we have here. You can see the effects of the lack of rain, but even that adds a certain atmosphere.

    1. The dry suits the cypress and the santoline, but this garden is better earlier in the season.
