Chédigny Rose Festival, Touraine, 2011


It was May, and once again the small and beautifully formed village of Chédigny held its Rose Festival. Organised by the Association Roses de Chédigny the entire festival is a delight to the senses ~ and the good thing is, you can still see the roses if you visit the village, but hurry as, because of the extraordinarily hot Spring, they’re peaking!. See below for some of the many images I took of the blooms and happenings.

    Having recently returned from a visit to Chedigny, I am intrigued to know what the significance is of equine artistry decorating some of the buildings in this lovely village. regards Elizabeth

      Well, Elizabeth, you’ve noticed something about this beautiful village that I’ve not spotted. I’ll try and find out the answer to your question ove the next few months. Kind regards, Jim

  2. Jim,
    Some beautiful photographs again. We went to the festival last year, but were busy this year.
    I like the hat. Did you buy it ?
    Best wishes
