Romantic garden

Un jardin romantique

Engllish version below the pictures

Ma fille Véronique s’en allait se promener dans notre jardin Lundi dernier 19 Avril 2021 . Quand elle traversait la pelouse l’if s’inclinait devant elle et la couvrait de son ombre rafraîchissante.

My daughter Véronique was going for a walk in our garden Last Monday April 19, 2021 (. When she crossed the lawn the yew tree bowed in front of her and covered it with its refreshing shade.

Puis elle passa dans une zone de lumière , au bout de laquelle elle voyait la barrière du jardinn potager . Une arche de lumière formée par un néflier et un lilas l’accueillait.

Then she passed into an area of ​​light, at the end of which she could see the barrier of the vegetable garden. An arch of light formed by a medlar and a lilac welcomed her

Enfin elle arriva dans le potager et là ellle tomba sous le charme d’un spectacle romantique du petit fils Rapphaêl ( 8 ans ) lisant au pied d’une cerisier en fleurs au milieu des ombres et lumières . Pendant ce temps le chien contemplait son maître ,mon fils jean baptiste, travaillet le sol. Ecoutons ses impressions
“Dans un jardin enchanté, plein de magie et de poésie, loin des bruits et de la fureur du monde, un petit garçon se repose à l’ombre bienveillante d’un cerisier en fleurs.Il médite sous l’œil vigilant de son chien fidèle pendant que son père inlassablement travaille la terre nourricière!”

N’et ce- pas un romantique spectacle? une “peinture” impressioniste ? Une source de paix ?

Finally she arrived in the vegetable garden and there she fell under the spell of a romantic spectacle of the grandson Raphaël (8 years old) reading at the foot of a cherry tree in bloom in the middle of the shadows and lights. During this time the dog contemplated his master, my son Jean Baptiste working the soil. Let’s listen to her impressions
“In an enchanted garden, full of magic and poetry, far from the noise and the fury of the world, a little boy is resting in the benevolent shade of a cherry blossom tree. He meditates under the watchful eye of his faithful dog while his father tirelessly works the nourishing earth! “
Isn’t that a romantic spectacle , an impressionist “painting” ? A source of peace?

    bonjour Michel,
    tout cela est très beau et nous fait rêver !
    nous avons besoin de belles choses en cette période tellement difficile pour certains !
    finalement je pense que les jardins sont à notre image !
    bises !

    Utterly idyllic! This is how I have always envisioned the French garden, somewhat wild and free. Americans like their gardens and yards to look manicured, with everything in rows. I must be French at heart because I like my garden to look natural and a little chaotic

  5. murisopsis says:

    The photos are wonderous! I agree they are like paintings! It is good that the garden is enjoyed by all – son, grandson, dog, and photographer!

    In my imagination, your garden is my “happy place.”

  7. wissh says:

    Yes indeed, an impressionist painting. I love this entry, Véronique’s photographs are beautiful and capture a moment in time that tweaks at my imagination. I’m glad the kids come to help with your gardens now and hope you can relax and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

  8. cocosangel says:

    Wow, it sounds poetic. Lovely how your daughter encountered her son under the Cherry Blossom tree. That last picture, looks like it is from an old novel.

  9. Yes, Angy, the last picture has no age but speaks to us . ❤

  10. Doug Thomas says:

    Wow! That describes your garden perfectly!

  11. suester7 says:

    Your words and the telling of the story are truly an Impressionist painting! Love this post ❤️

  12. LGail says:

    The picture looks so peaceful , like a Monet painting. If I close my eyes your description paints a beautiful picture too.

  13. Yes, a source of peace Michel! What a beautiful post my friend. I love the nature photographs too.

  14. Love your daughter’s description of your lovely garden. ❤ Such a charming, peaceful, and timeless scene! The photos speak to me about spring, family (including the dog), and the joy of reading! Wonderful post, Michel! Enjoy it in good health! Regards to Janine.

    Love ❤

    so lovely 🙂
    the smallest things are often the ones that create the largest impact
    the simplicity of life

    we had 2″ of snow in the last 2 days, ha
    it will melt soon, but it’s so nice to see the green of spring there

    keep safe
    here we are on another stay at home order
    i have received 1 of the 2 shots of the vaccine
    i’m happy for that
    the next will be in july
    hugs to you both – enjoy each day of sunshine xo

    • i am glad you got your first vaccine , Marlaine .
      And you are right to enjoy the first green of spring .
      Will you go in cruise, on this year after the complete vaccine ? ❤

    It is wonderful to see a young generation of today reading under a tree. I have spent much time reading under trees. Mainly because there was one spot my sister never found me to bug me.

  17. calmkate says:

    it is indeed an impressionists painting, so glad she caught the romantic tranquility of the moment! Thanks for sharing both your family and your garden Michel … I fear JB has a lot of work ahead of him 🙂

  18. It IS all of those things and more, Michel!
    The photos are beautiful masterpiece paintings!
    The words like an award winning story of life…pure poetry, lyrical and heart-touching!
    Thank you to you and to Véronique for this beautiful post!
    Gardens are life-giving to all who take the time to spend in/with them. 🙂
    (((HUGS))) ❤
    PS…I used to read under trees, or in them, when I was a little girl! 🙂
    PPS…Oh, Raphaël and Yris are growing up so fast! 🙂

    • Thanks Carolyn for your very kind comment. Yes Véronique was very inspired by this nature and human show .
      I am happy you recognize Raphaël like a twin . Do you remembr the twins are born in August 2012 ? ❤

      • You’re so welcome!
        Your post brought such joy and smiles to my day today!!! 🙂
        Yes, I DO remember that! 🙂 Time sure does fly by quickly!

      • Yes, Carolyn, time flies, punctuated by dialysis 3 times a week since 2018. In 2012 when the twins were born I was still on Xanga and you commented regularly even when you started wordpress ❤

      • I can’t even imagine how busy the dialysis makes your life…and how tiring. 😦 You are my brave friend who endures with a smile. 🙂 You are an encouragement and an inspiration to me!

        After Xanga started charging $ I paid for 1 year of Xanga, but when they didn’t improve the site at all…I finally left for good.

        Yes, I was here on WordPress AND on Xanga for awhile at the same time….to keep up with dear friends on each site. 🙂 Finally, then I switched over here and was so happy when so many Xangans “landed” on WordPress. 🙂

      • And I switched in 2015 because only a few people still used Xanga , it was the void ❤

      • I was invited over here to WP in 2011 by some Xangans who had left Xanga. After reading and commenting their posts here for about a year I began blogging here in Feb. 2012. 🙂

      • ….and Adamswomanback became Carolyn ! 🙂

    Il m’a fait plasir de lire ce blog… C’est tout à fait romantique et magique! “Dans un jardin enchanté, plein de magie et de poésie”! C’est comme un tableu impressionist!

  21. Lavinia Ross says:

    That is a beautiful passage about the magical garden from Véronique, Michel! I love her description of what she found there. It is everything a garden should be.

    I hadn’t been on Word Press for so long, I lost my way! I had to re-sign in and find my stuff. Sorry I haven’t visited you for awhile! I’m going to try to check in at least once a week. Your garden is so beautiful! May God send you peace and health.

  24. attatudy says:

    So pretty! I think I could get a chair and sit there with a book and a small picnic.

  25. puffpop says:

    I enjoyed walking with you in your beautiful garden. it responds to your loving caring touch. Reminds me of the paintings by Monet.

  26. atagrandma says:

    this is such a beautiful post. Thank you.

  27. You do have a beautiful garden and I love how you described it.

  28. Astrid says:

    This was such a poetic description. I cannot see the pictures as I’m blind, but I can totally picture your grandson in that garden in my mind’s eye.

  29. This is mesmerizing! The secret garden, how beautiful. We would all love to have a lovely escape such as this. ❤️ love!

  30. Caro says:

  31. Rachel says:

    If only life would be this enchanted all the time, but then, maybe we would not appreciate it. I am glad the family comes to help with the garden.
