A couple of years back, my OH and I went to Morocco. One of the places we visited was Jardin Majorelle. Originally the home and garden of the French painter Jacques Majorelle and first opened to the public in 1947. Restored by Pierre Berge and Yves Saint Laurent in 1980 it is well worth a visit if you ever happen to be in Marrakesh..
It is probably best known for its hard landscaping in bright colours, something which sadly does not work in the UK due to lower light levels. I would love to paint my house this colour, although even with better light it may attract a few strange glances.
There is a larger dry bed just in front of the house which has a lovely selection of agaves and cacti. This is surrounded by beds with a mixture of different planting including palms, bamboos and bananas.
One of my favourite aspects were all the brightly colour pots edging ad sometimes blocking the paths.
When you need a rest there are a few little places to sit and watch the world go by.
Looking through the photos again reminds me what a lovely holiday it was. Given outside it is grey and windy , I know where I would rather be!
