Living in the South of France - my autumn garden

Posted by on in Lou Messugo

Back in late 2015 I was asked by the magazine Living France to write a series of articles about my garden in the Côte d'Azur.  I wrote one for each season and couldn't publish them here on the blog as the magazine, being an actual "old-school" print magazine, requires its readers to purchase a hard copy.  Now, however, more than a year later I feel it's OK to share what I wrote for those of you who missed out first time round.

May is the month of the rose and where better to celebrate this than in the world’s perfume capital, Grasse, on the French Riviera.  Every year, over a weekend in early to mid May, the city honours the rose in all its forms at a 3 day festival, ExpoRose.  This year 8500 bouquets, 13000 rose bushes and over 25000 cut roses decorated fountains, statues, shop fronts and public squares throughout Grasse.  Dance and music performances, tastings of everything rose-flavoured, along with a market selling rose-themed gifts and food, and of course rose plants of every colour and variety imaginable, complete the festival.
