The mosaic gardens of Happonvilliers, near Chartres, France

The blue garden - the main terrace

mosaic terraceShimmering in the sun, the blue garden is like a flowing torrent which you hesitate to wade across. In the centre is the fish pond, which has Egyptian river scenes just above the water level.

At the far end, waves break on to a mosaic shore.

Within this landscape there are exquisite details, such as the moth, below, on one of the borders.
