Life in gardens: Ax-les-Thermes

1906 garden with steps in France, Bibliotheque ToulouseThe walled garden of Chalet Magazin, Ax-les-Thermes,  France,” July 1906, by Eugène Trutat, via Bibliothèque de Toulouse Commons on flickr.

From over the wall I could hear the laughter of women
in a foreign tongue, in the sun-rinsed air of the city. . . .

. . .  the sound filled up the garden and lifted

like bubbles spilling over the bricks that enclosed them. . .

Mary-Sherman Willis, from “The Laughter of Women
