We finally made it to Château de Cheverny when the tulips are out. Each year they plant 100,000 bulbs. The first photo is taken in front of the Orangery where the tulips in full sun all day are starting to go past their best-by date! The second photo, taken with my back to the Orangery, shows the back façade of the château with the tulips in the afternoon shade.

Nous avons enfin réussi à aller au château de Cheverny à l’époque des tulipes. Tous les ans, on plante 100 000 bulbes. La première photo est prise devant l’Orangery où les tulipes, en plein soleil toute la journée, ont dépassé un peu leur date limite ! La deuxième photo, prise dos à l’Orangerie, montre la façade arrière du château avec des tulipes à l’ombre l’après-midi.

    You left a zero off. They’ve planted over 100 000 tulip bulbs this year. I’m glad you got to see them. They are rather splendid.

      I shall fix up the figure! I have to confess that I was rather disappointed. I find them lacking imagination.

    They are so pretty! I’m looking forward to seeing them come up here.

      Yes, I know that your photo is from last year!

      Although we were disappointed on the whole, it’s worth going at least once.
