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.

My French garden: summer in Alpes-Maritimes

Posted by on in Lou Messugo

Last year I was contacted by Living France magazine and interviewed for a short article about the garden at Lou Messugo.  They found me through all the posts I have written here on the blog over the years about creating and developing our garden.  One thing led to another and now I write for the magazine every quarter.  Somehow I didn't get around to making much of a fuss about this back in April when my first article was published, but now that the second one is in print I thought I'd mention it after all!
