Wonderful article! I love the French elegant way of gardening. Sometimes intricate, sometimes so simple and natural.

Having been lucky enough to visit several European cities, I really think Paris was my favorite because of the many public gardens filled with statues, open to all. In Italy, many gardens were locked up and inaccessible. Luxembourg gardens of Paris with all its wonderful statues, is a favorite.

Lovely article! Loved the antique limestone bench you photographed. We have a few just like it from Aix-en-Provence in our antique yard in Luberon France.
