The last part of the Parc is The Twilight Garden, representing Autumn which I assume means the last cycle of life, or as an actor once said ‘the final act’. I must admit I did not understand this part of the garden and leave you with some plants and sights which caught my eye but I can’t say anything intelligent about what I was seeing!
I saw the Jardin de la Lune Rousse at the wrong time – the leaves had not yet coloured – but the Gunnera were remarkable! I think they would be dramatic in monotone – perhaps one more post?
In the Jardin des Rêveries du Soir d’Éte the lavish displays of Montbretia were planted in square wooden ‘pots’ and beautiful, and nearby a similar arrangement of Agapanthus was equally beautiful, although I think I prefer a field of flowers, as I remember seeing at Vergelegen, near Stellenbosch in the Cape.
Nearby was this wonderful conifer…
And a last blue hydrangea and the Chateau de la Foltière. Until the next visit…
Parc Botanique de Haute Bretagne
montbretia can be so fluppily untidy that the square pots give them a bit of a life – a very nice solution . What a blue blue hydrange – evidently not much lime in this soil
Yes they looked good, and I have also seen Monbretia planted amongst grasses on roundabouts – it looks good.
The Gunnera look good in monotone too.
Still full of colour!
