The International Garden Festival was created in 1992 around Chaumont Castle on the side of the Loire river.
Every year it offers an tribute to garden design with a new theme that changes each year. This years topic was "Body& Soul".
The gardens are made by architects, designers or artists- often strange, entertaining, futuristic or really weird but nevertheless very inspiring.
Trees are painted red, big pictures are hanging between them in the forrest, chairs are standing on top of a lake, a grand piano between an ocean of flowers while you listen to Jazz music...
Every garden is different, from very simple to absolutely incredible and unbelievable. It is worth going! And I will be back next year for sure.
