When we were in Marrakech (Morocco), we also visited the he Majorelle Garden it is a botanical garden. It was designed by the expatriate French artist (painter) Jacques Majorelle in 1924, when Morocco was a protectorate of France. The garden he created is a creative masterpiece. The special shade of bold cobalt blue which he used extensively in the garden and its buildings is named after him, bleu Majorelle.
The garden has been open to the public since 1947. Since 1980 the garden has been owned by Yves Saint-Laurent and Pierre Bergé. After Yves Saint Laurent died in 2008 his ashes were scattered in the Majorelle Garden.
The colors were really amazing but so strong that most of my pictures were not good, because I forgot to set the light.
It started already at the entrance of the garden with this simple but very colorful pots.
the museum was painted in this special blue
I thought how easy it would be to paint a simple flower pot and it gives such an amazing result.

In the brochure I received is written : " The Majorelle Garden is one the the 20th century's most mysterious gardens. It is a place of rare individual expression and mystical force. The garden is an overpowering abundance of vegetal shapes and forms representing five continents and reflects Jacques Majorelle's significance as one of the most important plant collectors of his time.
Since acquiring and restoring the property, Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé have established a trust to ensure Majorelle Garden's future existence.
Yves St. Laurent took most of his inspirations for his creations here in this garden where he lived in Majorelle's house.
