River of Tulips at Cheverny – Une rivière de tulipes à Cheverny

I have to say that, apart from the tulips in front of the Orangery in Cheverny, I was not impressed by their display which I thought lacked imagination like their Christmas decorations. At no point can you see the château itself from the tulip beds. I did, however, try to make the most of the “river of tulips” in my photographs.
Je dois dire qu’a part des tulipes devant l’Orangerie à Cheverny, j’étais décue par leur aménagement car je trouvais tout comme leurs décorations de noël qu’il manquait d’imagination. Aucun point de vue n’associe le château avec les parterres de tulipes. J’ai cherché néanmoins à en tirer la meilleure partie de la “rivière des tulipes” dans mes photos.

Most people rave about them but I really think they could be more inventive. Jean Michel says that it’s so that they are planted mechanically and he’s probably right. 100,000 is a lot of bulbs!
