Traveling to France in May is definitely a good time for flowers. Everything was in bloom, some of it already wilting again due to ongoing drought. I didn’t find as many flowers as on my trip to Costa Rica, but that’s understandable. France has a totally different ecosystem. At least Le Mans didn’t disappoint in this department. So here are the rest of my pictures. Not a lot of lowers apparently in the other towns from our history tour. But beautiful enough to warrant their own post. Yours, Pollybert
The flower below is interesting. It looked like a peony at first and it was definitely the season for it. But the leaves are all wrong, they do actually look more like a poppy. See also the bud in front. Maybe it’s a hybrid of something?
The last flower of this trip comes the castle gardens of Amboise. The wisteria was full bloom and emitted a heady fragrance.
