Friday Fun: Secret Gardens Around the World

It’s not just the British gardens that are beautiful, of course. Here are some more hidden gardens all over the world, where you can forget about the hustle and bustle of daily life.

  1. Very enjoyable. In Tunisia, where dwellings were underground in desert situations, there are these lovely sunken courtyards. Some of the early Star Wars footage was filmed there. I’ve never been to Brazil! Fingers crossed to see that lushness for real some day!

  2. All lovely in very different ways. One of my favourite garden visits while on holiday was to Yves St Laurent’s Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. Gorgeous!

  3. They are all so lovely, Marina Sofia! And I like the ingenuity of turning a sinkhole into a garden! That’s so very clever. My vote is for the one in Tsitsikamma National Park, but they’re all beautiful. What a tonic for the soul.
