Chateau de Valmer, the Potager — 18 Comments

  1. Oh wow. I’m not sure what else I can say. I love the photos and your writeup. I’ve never heard of an insect house, so I must investigate. Oh, and I love the round tower for the night gardener.

  2. An insect house…huh. You learn something new everyday! Your photos are very nice, Joy, and I feel like I am taking a trip with you. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Goodness! Gardening (even for the kitchen) was clearly super-involved back in the day. That round tower is precious, and something I’ve never heard of before. Thanks for sharing those photos and stories!

  4. Hi, Joy,

    We have a very wee potager (and I do mean VERY!) so seeing one like this both overwhelms me with the work and sets my taste buds savoring!

    I meant to say thank you for stopping by The Marmelade Gypsy — we’ve been on holiday and I am behind visiting Parisian spots like yours!

  5. I’ve discovered two insect houses this trip- I’d not seen them before. They certainly look fascinating, how wonderful to have someone explain them. What a trip you had.
