Container Gardening Ideas: The Flowered Bridges of Daoulas

I have written other posts on some of the beautiful and lush planters, borders or roundabouts to be found throughout France, as many small towns compete with one another for the most lavish and sometimes wildly creative floral displays. Here are some of the flowered boxes decorating the town of Daoulas in northwestern France, in particular the small bridges dotting the river.

Bright Colors for this Camaret Flower Garden

Camaret is a small fishing village on the northern coast of Brittany, France, where a mild microclimate in this coastal region allows for an unusually large number of plants to thrive in local gardens.

It is impossible to pass this garden without stopping to admire the extravagant display of annuals, perennials, flowering and foliage shrubs, specimen plants, climbing roses, shrub roses, potted arrangements and water features.
