Such fun looking through garden designs from the International Garden Festival of Chaumont-sur-Loire. Every year in the estate of Chaumont-sur-Loire Castle, thirty or so artists and landscape artists from all over the world create contemporary gardens on a specific theme. All the landscape installations evolve during the 6 months they are on display, as the rules state that the garden must be at its most beautiful in autumn. This year’s theme is “Gardens of Thought”.

Here are a few of my favourites to whet your appetite. See them all at
