An Oasis of Blue

The color blue has its place in almost any garden. But perhaps in no garden does that hue dominate the way it does in Jardin Majorelle, the amazing blue garden in Marrakech, Morocco, the land of the Blue Men, as the local Tuareg tribesmen are known. I've been to Marrakech a few times, and once even got a role as an extra (a very extra) in Ishtar, one of Hollywoods most high-profile bombs (Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty starred). Until my next visit I must settle for this video tour of Jardin Majorelle, a garden that is a major inspiration for my own use of paint as an element of garden design.
