designer gardens

so on the afternoon of our arrival in Marrakech we made an executive decision to change the gardens on our itinerary to the Majorelle Gardens.  I had seen them in 2000 when I last visited but they had been extensively replanted since the death of Yves St. Laurent (who lived in a villa there and owned them)

here is a little blurb about them from the brochure-

I would say the overwhelming impression of the garden isn't one of the plants but of the color of what I would describe as electric cobalt blue--- but judge for yourself - LOL

LOL - to say that it is blue is an understatement....there are other colors there as well but blue is dominant -

by the time we left the garden it was getting quite late in the afternoon so we headed to the hotel to check in- it was located in the Medina- and was called the Riad Kniza--- lovely place in an old courtyard home that had been converted- but more on that in the next post because we also had our dinner there and it was really quite an amazing meal so stay tuned....
