Table & Chairs, Chateau Les Milandes, Dordogne, France, April 2005
This was Josephine Baker's Chateau - its now open to the public & worth a visit. It was the first day of the season and the tables and chairs just set out and the gravel freshly raked. I liked the shadows of the trees cast across the gravel
Chateau Marquessac, Dordogne France, March 2005, Topiary Garden
