Marakech Jardin Majorelle

Jacques Majorelle built the garden, it was bought by Yves Saint Laurent and restored, later left to the Foundation Pierre Berge with the intention of being open to the public for ever.

Wow. and again WOW! There was lots of water, fountains and orange and yellow pots, with bright blue and aqua buildings. 

   Even with lots of tourists visiting, it was tranquil and peaceful and it was easy to relax and just enjoy the setting.

I loved the patterns on the windows, especially the play of light and shadows.

There is a quiet little cafe where I drank my first real cup of tea in Morrocco whilst Tina tried mint tea for the first time.

some of the plants were interesting too :)

Within the garden there is a small but very interesting Berber Museum, the jewelry shown was incredibly creative but sadly no photographs were allowed inside.
