French Wash House Basin Converted into Aquatic Garden

As already mentioned in one of my previous posts, every French village had one or more communal wash houses, many of them just a fountain filling a basin to wash clothes in.

This one on the edge of the village of Roscanvel has been converted into a lovely aquatic garden basin with papyrus and other aquatic plants,¬†and assorting plantings of ferns, erigeron … around it.
