An Elegant French Provencal Garden

rows of plane trees, with a focal point

soft colours

old gate and climbing roses

a unique pathway (!)

loads of space and neatly clipped hedges

olive trees

now tell me this is not a wonderful masterpeice of a garden!!!???
I adore the greenery with greyish undertones, the sleek lines, neat details. 

It's described as :
"the garden of the 17th century Mas de Pilons farmstead in Provence is a symphony of spaces, each with its own character, linked by elegant borders (photographed by Michael Paul)

This is truly enchanting. I especially love the white roses that are climbing up the gate. Could you image waking up to that every day?
