Alchemist not at Home

We went to the nearby village of Eygalière the other day. It's very chi-chi! Rumour has it that Brad and Anjelina and all the little orphans (the jolipitts?) have been looking at real estate there!

Eygalières sits at the base of the Alpilles, just to the East of St-Rémy-de-Provence and has fantastic views from the old village.

We were there to visit the Jardin de l'Alchemiste, but unfortunately it's not open for another month. However, I just found these pictures that I took there last July, so I thought I'd put them up instead...

I'm not sure of the purpose of this line of curtains, but it's very striking. I'd like to do something along these lines at our place as it's linear nature would suit our very rectilinear garden.

I'm not sure if we'll ever have a covered avenue, but one day I hope that our new pergolas will have a similar shady feel. I've been building the pergolas on and off for a few weeks now. One is finished, although it'll be a while until it's covered with the vines and creepers that I've planted. The other will have its cane roof added soon. Hopefully next week. Then, of course, I'll post pictures of them.

A water feature is a bit more of a pipe dream at the moment. (Pipe dream! Get it?)
