Parc Botanique de Haute Bretagne – Jardins du Crepuscule

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 Vergelegennear Stellenbosch in the Cape.

Nearby was this wonderful conifer…


And a last blue hydrangea and the Chateau de la Foltière. Until the next visit…

  1. 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

I'd love to hear from you!
