Post subject:  Tell me about the gardens

Even though it is fall, I'm starting to plan my garden for new spring. I live in the city and normally I wouldn't have much room for plants at all. But, I'm a lucky girl and I have a lot and a half. I want to have a Marie Antoinette themed (maybe the better word is styled) garden.

I haven't been fortunate enough to visit any of her residences in Europe yet, so I'm hoping that you my dears can help me. What kind of flowers should I plant? What kind of feel did you get from walking long the grounds? Even if you don't remember a name of a particular plant, anything would help. I'd love to hear your stories and advice.

Thank you so much!

That sounds like a great idea. I have never been to Versailles (yet), but this website has photos of the Petit Trianon gardens, the photos were taken by the sites members
