Landscaped French Country Garden by the Sea

A charming couple owns this house on the northern coast of France, and both are avid gardeners, changing and adding every year new plants, annuals from seed, and cuttings collected from fellow gardeners or just found during walks  around the peninsula. They are in the process of redoing the vegetable garden in the back, but  part of the front garden is dedicated to a home orchard of fruit trees, apples in several varieties, pears, and plums.  Specimen shrubs and palms are underplanted with perennials, and roses are mixed into borders at every turn, or found climbing the walls.
