The Gardens at Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild 2

A statue for a shady niche, an angel, I believe.

Great sense of depth, and the water really livens things here. Are you using any new software?

Dsole said...

wow, those plants seem to be huge indeed!

Fabulous photos. I love this series - this place has always been on my list of must-do visits - and now you've made it essential.

Anatomically correct angel, I believe ;-)

Hi Angela! I want to ask you If you and maybe another woman with photograph machine were in Villa Ephrussi Rotchild during the last Sunday, because also me and my family were there in that day !!! We meet 2 women that made picture along the exotic garden. Are you there in Sunday? Do you remember a family with 2 boys (14 and 15) and a girl (9) ? I'm a frequent visitor if your site and when I see these picture on tuesday I remember all who I see there.

Olivier: il y avait deux fontaines une chaque cote.
Tut Tut: thanks for the compliment but I haven't changed anything. Oh yes, I did crop this one because the sunlight on the water didn't work well.
Jilly: it's truly a must-see. The gardens are fabulous and there's usually something interesting to see in the house..
Isabella: :))
Simo: nice to meet you. Sorry it wasn't me..I went during the week with my husband but I wish it had been me. That would have been a story...Do you have a blog?

Simo said...

Sorry Angela, I don't have a blog. I spent all my work time on pc, so when I finish go out immediatly, without time to make a blog.
"Nice" to "write to you". Your blog around Nice is my best, cause Nice is my second town. Wish you continue like now!!

A great picture of a beautiful area my garden is just tidy ready for summer I have new homebase garden furniture and also a new lawn, I thought about a couple of statues but settled on a stork and sundail at the bottom it may not look as good as this but I love it.
