A French Garden in May.



My green glazed pots have seen better days; cracked all over, and repeatedly badly repaired.


Richard on the look-out for scraps.


I've extended the vines to the West of our au vent, hopefully this will give extra shade for evening dining.


Pool still closed, we usually open-up on June 1st.


Palm flowers. Pity it doesn't produce dates instead. Hmmmm.

  1. Cro, your garden is amazing! Everything is so beautiful...it looks like a small paradise. You are a lucky soul. I'd never want to leave home for even five minutes if I lived there! :)

  4. I do 't think we have seen these views of your garden before - it is all looking very Mediterranean and lush. For all you say you're not a gardener but the pictures disprove this.

  5. As Elaine says - views we have not seen before, so fascinating. I love those pots with cracks - they have character. And also love those two coloured irises - mine are the boring purple and are not even in bud yet. Oh for your climate here.

  6. Don't think I have ever seen you au vent before on you blog Cro. With Richard hanging around does that make it a chicken vol au vent?

    1. The simple answer is 'yes'. Or maybe 'no'.

  7. I like the cracked pots too. I found flaked glaze and cracks on a dark red pot of mine recently and decided that I liked it :-) What lovely spaces you've made for yourselves and the irises even co-ordinate with the poultry!

  10. It looks like a lovely spring day at Chez Cro.

    Are those poppies that I see in your cracked pots?

    1. I think they're Petunias (?). I bought them at my supermarket.
