Plus des fleurs en France

Over the last few days we’ve been touring through the Champagne region and Picardie, famous for their “flower towns”, with just about every town in the region decorated profusely with hundreds of different kinds of colourful flowers…so pretty!

Champagne!

France really is the pays des fleurs (country of flowers)! The first photo here features the flowers of the Chateau de Versailles, the gardens of which are some of the largest and most sumptuous in Europe. Today, we were delighted to discover tiny wild strawberries growing in the forests of the champagne region, which we are now enjoying with the famous bubblys of the region!
