169. HDYGG - Château de Hautefort

Château de Hautefort

I'm indulging in some Summer holiday memories this week, with a few garden photos from our Dordogne holiday. It feels like it was years ago and only last week all rolled up into one, time's a funny bugger isn't it? I swear my perception of it has altered over the past couple of years...

Château de Hautefort has received France's Jardin Remarkable status. Designed in the 19th century by the Compte de Choulot, a famous landscape architect of the time this French formal style garden features lots of clipped hedges as well as pops of colour from roses and dahlias.

Sneaking in a bit of sunflower action to round things off ;)

Thanks to all who joined in last week, some faves include: Some Chawton action, darling buds, a rather spectacular glasshouse and Cambridge Botanic Gardens.

Goodness only knows what's going on with the weather at the moment, rainy / hot / rainy / hot - it's going to make for some rather interesting photos for next weeks HDYGG!
