Marais garden, Paris

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The “hidden garden” of  the Musée des Archives Nationale in early September.

A quiet place to retreat to while exploring the popular Marais section of Paris.

I particularly liked the row of wire grid columns just inside the entrance from Rue des Quatre-Fils.  They enclosed upright pyracantha bushes and were underplanted with fountain grass.

    1. It’s to create a row of tall, narrow cubes of pyracantha. I think the shrubs will eventually mostly fill up the wire supports.They are placed in front of some large modern ground floor windows, and they must create a sense of privacy for those inside without actually blocking all the view.
