Majorelle Garden, Morocco - Photo of the Day

Majorelle Garden

The Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech, Morocco took French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) forty years to create. Behind high earthen walls, shady walks meander though exotic plants and burbling streams and pools filled with water lilies and lotus flowers.  
The air is laden with sugared fragrance and songbirds' chirping fill the air. My Blue Heaven.


  1. What an idyllic garden and pond. Is it protected and still there, and is it open to the public? Just in case I travel to Morocco ...

  2. Beautiful. I wonder if he visited Giverny? It echoes that sensibility, but ramps up the color and texture in a way that reflects the Moroccan aesthetic. Beautiful

    1. Hello Terra, hello all,

      Yes, the Jardin Majorelle is open to the public. Here some pictures (January 2014):
