Elisée garden: in the heart of France

A few dozen kilometers from the "official" center of France, is the Garden of Elisha, floral and botanical park in the south of the Cher department, it was created from scratch by a couple of Belgians in a few years and opened to the public since June 2008. A succession of themed gardens: the orchard, the hillside vineyards, bamboos, the duck pond, the flower garden, the medicinal garden.
We are in Berry and it is quite natural that we find "the mystery lair", a garden where sorcery is in the spotlight with plants such as datura, belladonna or even poisonous aconite legend has it that she kills the mothers-in-law! The tinctorial garden presents the plants that make it possible to obtain colored pigments. There are also pharmaceutical gardens and perfumes, but it is especially the garden of liquors and spirits which intrigues the visitors. Bottles containing the recipes of these alcohols have been put at the plant level, so we can discover how to turn magnolia into liquor.
The Berry is also known for its donkeys, and the garden of Elisha welcomes several. You can walk there for more than six months of the year: in April, May: thousands of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, violets come to flower the garden. In June: it's the waltz of roses, alliums, iris ... And july with jellies: a beautiful collection of lilies, dahlias, roses, hydrangeas, sumptuous grasses and colors galore, the orchard and the kitchen garden always more generous .
