Jardin Majorelle, Marrakech

By TrevBatWCC    
These are for Isabel (Chinga)! Following her upload of colourful spices, it reminded me of the Souks in Marrakech, and she mentioned about wanting to visit Morocco. So, as promised, shall upload a few images from my holiday there pre-EPZ days!
If you ever get to Marrakech, the Jardin Majorelle is a must place to visit. Just a stone's throw away from the hustle and bustle of the city's traffic, it's so quiet and peaceful. It took French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) forty years of passion and dedication to create this enchanting 2˝ acre botanical garden. In the 1980s, the property was purchased by the fashion designers, Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé who worked to restore it. The garden and villa complex houses the bold cobalt blue coloured Islamic Art Museum of Marrakech & Berber Museums.
All images at that time were taken on my 3.2-megapixel compact Nikon Coolpix as Jpegs, and a good bit of tweaking in Photoshop has helped perk them up!

Many thanks to Isabel (Chinga) for her User Award on my previous upload , most appreciated 🏆👍

Thanks again to everyone for your vote & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging 😀👍

Fabulous - I've always wanted to go to Morocco too.
We used to have a Moroccan room in our house but never actually
got there.
In Garden Rescue yesterday the couple wanted a Moroccan theme.
Those blues are glorious.
Love V6.
