Le Jardin Plume

– Posted in: Miscellaneous

I really should save this post for a week or two, but I just can’t resist sharing this gem right now. Those of you who were lucky enough to see the August 2008 issue of Gardens Illustrated were treated to a story about a stunning French garden called La Jardin Plume. This morning, I was searching for more information about it and found a link to the garden’s web site. Wow. That’s what I want my garden to look like when it grows up.

The site is mostly in French, but no matter: It’s easy enough to figure out how to navigate the site, and you can pick the botanical names out of the text. What you’re going for is the images, anyway: simply amazing. Check them out: La Jardin Plume. And oh my gosh, there’s a book about the garden as well, by the photographers: Joelle and Gilles Le Scanff-Mayer. It too is only in French, but you can see a few more photos on its Amazon.fr page. Enjoy!

Nan gardens on 4 acres in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. In the firm belief that every garden ought to have a pretentious-sounding (or at least pretentious-looking) name, she refers to her home grounds as "Hayefield." There, she experiments with a wide variety of plants and planting styles, from cottage gardens and color-based borders to managed meadows, naturalistic plantings, and veggies--all under the watchful eyes of her two pet alpacas, Daniel and Duncan.
