JARDIN PUBLIC

Summer days in Bayeux

The weather is cold, the sky is grey, so here’s some pics of some hot summer days.

Created in 1859 by Eugène Bühler, “The Public Garden of Bayeux”  covers 2.6 hectares and is the home to over 400 tree species. One of these trees, a weeping beech “le Hêtre Pleureur” ,  is a certified  ‘Remarkable tree of France’ (I didn’t even know that existed). The branches are so heavy on its old trunk that a complicated support system of wires was constructed to keep the tree standing.

Le Jardin Publique de Bayeux:
Open 9am to 5pm, October to March
and 9am to 8pm, April to September
