Anyone who ilkes Cactus and similar may find these pictures (from August 2008) of interest. They are all from the Jardin Majorelle. The web site says: "Jacques Majorelle is born in 1886 in Nancy (France). In 1919 he settles in Marrakech to continue his career of painter, where he acquires a ground which was going to become the Majorelle garden. Since 1947 he opens his garden's doors to the public. Following a car accident, he returns to france, where he dies in 1962. in 1980 Pierre BergÃ© and Yves Saint Laurent repurchase the garden and restore it. Contrasts, the colours, the light games seem go out of one of the pictures of Jacques Majorelle. It was one of the more important collectors of plants of his era, and this is in this spirit than enlarges itself from day to day the flore of the garden. Plants of the five continents are exposed in an enchanting framework. This that was the workshop of Jacques Majorelle, inspiration place and of contemplation, shelters today the magnificent art collection Islamic of Pierre BergÃ© and Yves Saint Laurent. The originality of these places lies in the combination of a luxurious vÃ©gÃ©tation and architectural elements allying sobriÃ©tÃ© and traditional aesthetic Moroccan. The power of the blue Majorelle participates in the freshness impression and of quiÃ©tude." The pictures number 11 onwards are pictures from Jardin Aguedal - really a huge and ancient irrigated allotment gardens also in Marrakech. The Photo 11 is a vicious spiky shrub, - photo 14 are grapes that caught my eye and the last photo is an interesting weed - so close to the ground - and in full sunlight. I would be interested if anyone could identify?
