A Passion For Pink

While attending French school here on the Cote d’Azure, we are free on the weekends. Maurice came down and one day we decided to take the bus and visit the Villa And Gardens of Beatrice de Rothschild in Saint Jean Cap Ferrat. To say they are magnificant is an understatement. Beatrice had a passion for travel where she collected many things, a passion for pink which she often wore and her home was painted pink too, and a passion for her garden.

There were eight separate gardens all blended together. These were in the exotic garden. There was also a Spanish garden, Florentine, Stone, Japenese, Rose, French and Provencal gardens. There were fountains that came on with music every twenty minutes.

I took so many photos but I think I like this simple one the best. There’s just something pleasing about orange flowers against gray.

  1. I would have loved to have seen this Pink Palace (for fairly obvious reasons, I should think!), but I didn’t even know it existed till now. Thanks yet again for enlightening me!

  2. WOW!!! Witha view like that I would keep comfy outdoor furniture on that roof and spend all my fre time there. The mountains, the gardens, the pond, the trees…it’s all too gorgeous:-)
