We just finished our second immersion weekend of French at the Normandy chateau. The weather was great! Flowers were blooming! And I did much better with my French!
It violates an Alaskan's weather-sense to sit inside learning French when the sun is shining. My husband made a request that we do some excursions and although we may have learned a little less French...we learned much more about our surroundings. My favorite site was a small but gorgeous public garden in Avranches.
This is a bulb...but I have never seen this plant before...very pretty. If you know the name of this flower please tell me.
There was a circular flower bed of massive daffodils...with poppies getting ready to open.
White daffodils!!! I wish I could naturalize daffodils like this in Alaska but it just doesn't work.
Huge areas planted with heather.
This is a hillside with many varieties of azaleas on the verge of blooming.
And at the entrance, a giant Sequoia brought from California and planted in 1853.
More photos of the town tomorrow...
