Jardin d'Adoué in Lay-Saint-Christophe on Heritage Days
Each year we try to visit at least one place during the Journées Européennes du Patrimoine (European Heritage Days). So, on Saturday, we went to a garden in Lay-Saint-Christophe called Le Jardin d'Adoué.
This garden was created in the 1990s and is situated on a steep land on the highest part of the village. It is interesting to see how the owners managed to make flower beds, to plant bushes and trees to make a very pleasant area to have a walk around.
Visitors can also buy plants there and, for this special week end, other nurserymen were invited to give advices and to sell their plants.
I am sure the most difficult this year was to keep flowers blooming as our weather has been so changeable. But all was quite green.
I really like the sort of islands standing on the lawn with one tree, one or several bushes and one object (a bench, a statue, a seat...). Everyone can find a favourite.
There is even a pond with ducks and a metal decoration which was really successful.
A lot of people were leaving with pots, we only left with pictures of the flowers we liked a lot and with their names, of course.
