Although the pavilion is an incredible place, the ancient gardens surrounding it, are it's equal. The many different shades of green plantings are amazing. Although I think I took some decent photographs of the gardens, in no way do they do the colors justice.
These photos were taken on an overcast and rainy spring day, Other than a slight contrast adjustment, please note that these photographs have not been processed or "photoshopped" in any way. It took a genius to plan out the garden and to select plantings for it. The area has changed very little in the last 700 years.
for better viewing, please enlarge these photos
Certainly not supposed to be here
