Have never been—but I can definitely picture her strolling here. What a lovely spot (and shot), V!

Bienvenue chez French Girl in Seattle... said...

Bonsoir Virginia. I have just found your blog... even though you found mine a few weeks ago. Am I glad I am here. Gorgeous photography, truly. This one caught my eye. I worked in Rueil Malmaison for 10 years before I moved to Seattle. The American Express French HQ was there. I have fond memories of visiting "La Malmaison." There is another great place in Rueil. Have you ever had lunch at the famous restaurant "La Maison Fournaise" on Ile de Chatou? I could see it from my desk while at work... Ah, memories. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Ah! it looks too glorious - I have a beautiful soft pink bourbon rose with the pretty name of Souvenir-de-la-Malmaison. How I would love to stroll in that beautiful garden - you have captured the essence of it well.
Have a lovely week-end Virginia.

Like a lovely hidden garden! Our three little darlings would have livened up that quiet space....

I have read so much about her, would love to visit. My favorite is a trilogy. The Secret Lives of Josephine B.

A new place! I like the grotto effect and the cluster of foreground flowers for color.

The last time we were there, during the month of April, we were greeted with a hail storm! But so worth the visit; only wish the weather had been better for garden viewing. Come to think of it, there has been inclement weather on both occasions I've been there, so thank you very much for this lovely photo!
