Gardens festival – Chaumont sur Loire

This summer we decided to visit the Loire Valley. We had never went in that area and as we had a long weekend we decided to take advantage.

As we (almost) never plan things ahead and we don’t like castles too much, we asked the locals what we could see.

And this is how we learned that the “Festival des jardins” was not far. As I had seen a documentary about it, I really wanted to go there – plus the theme this year – The Capital Sins sounded more than interesting.

So in order to illustrate the capital sins, garden designers from around the world created spaces in order to show: greed, pride, avarice, envy, lust, consumerism, etc.
