A visit to the Jardins d'Eau in Carsac, Dordogne, with a few friends. The weather was fine, full sun, sometimes a bit too hot, but it was a very enjoyable visit. .
According to the guide book : :
Created in 1999, the gardens overlook the banks of the river Dordogne and present a rare collection of water plants in an ancient Gallo-Roman site.
We arrived around 10h30 and made a first tour to see the lakes, the magnificent water lillies and the numerous frogs. Then lunch together under the trees followed by a second circuit to look at the most interesting parts in more detail including the water maze and the dragonflies. During this second circuit we were fortunate enough to see an unusual meteorological phenomenon, a "cloud irridesence" - quite rare and very beautiful.
