Today’s photos are of Brigitte Michon’s “Le Jardin du 7” in a village in Bourgogne, France. The garden is a permaculture jungle full of roses, hedges, ground covers, shrubs, trees, and a vegetable patch.
A serene water feature is set in the lush jungle of the garden.
Old-fashioned roses scramble up a rustic arbor. I bet they smell amazing.
A beautiful little sitting area is full of plants, with a supply of pots at the ready.
Flowering climbers covering the garden make the space feel even more wild and full of life.
Plants cover every square inch of this garden, with the walls of the building even covered with Boston ivy (Parthenocissus tricuspidata, Zones 4–8).

Even a small table and chair have potted plants living on them!
From tall-growing perennials to shrubs and rose-covered arbors, this garden makes great use of vertical space to pack even more flowers in.
Both ornamental and edible, delicious-looking bunches of grapes are ripening.
