Week-end in Normandy

A few weeks ago we went to Dieppe. Normandy was enchanting, as all the fruit trees were in bloom. We came across the beautiful Gardens of Moutiers in Varengeville, which is also a shrine for the only Arts & Crafts house in France, designed by Edwin Landseer Lutyens.

Click here to find out more about this architect, considered by many as the greatest english architect of the 20th Century, and who worked on the plans of New Delhi, where he built the Viceroy's house :

Also, in the village, is a church for which famous painter Georges Braque designed stained panels. Unfortunately the panels were being repaired, which gave the bizarre impression that a spring cleaning was going on...

More on this lovely Varengeville Church.

The Braque stained pannel The Jesse Tree.
