Bursting with colours: France's unusual gardens
Date created :
Some gardens look like something out of a dream. The garden of Roscoff, in France's western Finistère region, is one of them. It was created 35 years ago by a roaming botanist who brought back exotic plants from as far away as New Zealand and South Africa. Meanwhile, at Saint-Paul in the Oise region, painter André Van Beek is also a gardener. The result is a life-size Impressionist painting. The stunning garden boasts a thousand species of flowers of all different colours.
