Another Thursday in February means it’s our chance to escape to another beautiful garden. Today we travel to Marrakech, a city that I loved but which was the most fast-paced destination I’ve visited. What better location could there be for an oasis of quiet?
That oasis is Majorelle Garden. Named for its original owner, Jacques Majorelle, it was later purchased and donated to the city by Yves St. Laurent. It’s also the namesake for majorelle blue, the deep cobalt shade that predominated throughout the garden.
The minute we stepped in, we felt miles away from honking vehicles and energetic salespeople. The garden is criss-crossed with paths that conduct you from one beautiful sight to another. From a small tiled pool to an enormous pond filled with lily pads. From a bed of cacti to blossoming bougainvilleas. The garden is also home to a number of bird species that live only in North Africa.
Join me as I guide you through the ultimate haven in blue – Majorelle Garden.
