Gourdon’s Garden, Provence, France

From the flickr caption: “The Castle of Gourdon is close by Saint Paul de Vence, Provence, on the top of a mountain. Its gardens were designed by Le Notre, Louix XIV’s gardener who also did Versailles park.” I love the perspective—looking down from the cultivated area into the wilderness of the canyon—and how it shows the gardeners hard at work on the hedges (and careful enough to use a drop-cloth for the clippings). Cultivation indeed.
