Chateau Milandes

Chateau Milandes, once the home of Josephine Baker is open to the public. In addition to the exhibition of costumes and the wonderful falconry displays there is now the beautiful garden. Originally Charles Claverie commissioned Jules Vacherot, head gardener of Paris to design the garden which is now the subject of extensive renovation.

Star of Zanzibar

The beautiful ‘Star of Zanzibar’ tropical water-lily we bought from the famed Latour-Marliac nursery has flowered wondefully this summer. Now in its second year it has made good growth in the new larger tub so hopefully next year will be ready to move into the newly puchased water-trough.
