Trees, Gardens and Castles 2023

In Autumn 2023, we made a quick visit by Eurostar to Domont, and our friends invited us to join them on a fabulous trip to the Vexin. It's a beautiful part of Normandy countryside. We had a guided tour of the Chateau of Roche-Guyon before going on to Monet's magical garden in Giverny. The weather was unusually warm for September (35 C) - perfect for viewing the garden, but hot for the inside of Monet's house.

Soon after the visit, Domont offered us the chance to have our own Cox apple tree in their new reclaimed forest area. This sapling is now planted and will soon have a plaque in French and English informing visitors about its origins.
