France 2014: Les Fleurs d’Argenton

 

Around Argenton-sur-Creuse there are lots of lovely pots of flowers, whether they are lining the bridges that span the River Creuse, or decorating the footpaths outside the houses along the narrow streets.

Being a medieval town, most houses are constructed from stone, and the house we are in is over 150 years old. Renovated by my sister and brother-in-law, it provides all the comforts of home, and having no garden means less maintenance. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate the flowers elsewhere.

Fabulous Foreign Foliage

All taken on the grounds of Thara Patong Beach Resort, I was fascinated by the fabulous foliage that abounds here. Tropical climates have a style all of their own, extremely appreciated by people who live in temperate climes, such as Melbourne, Australia.
