Diane de Poitiers' garden at Chenonceau

This garden is a traditional formal French garden.  The wall seen in the background surrounds the garden and was designed to protect it from flooding by the adjacent river Cher.  The wall is also punctuated by white architectural urns which overflow beautifully with flowers.


  1. We toured the castle, but I understand the gardens are pretty impressive.

  2. They are indeed. And there at least three different ones. I guess you'll have to come back!
