Hard to desbribe.....
Marrakech. The gardens were created by Louis Majorelle and restored by
Yves St. Laurent. In fact, St. Laurent is memorialized in the garden
with a shrine as well as a small art gallery featuring his collage art
work that he used tob send to friends and colleagues every holiday
season. These are a few photos of structures in the garden painted
with their own color of paint, bleu marjorelle. I am trying to find
the pigment to bring home as it is not possible to ship the paint.
Bummer. This blue color really works with all the agave and cactus
plantings and looks amazing and vibrant in this desert light. I will
be postin mote plant photos later, but for now, it's all about color.
Craig are you out there???? ( the blue made me think of you!)
