If spring is an explosion of colors in the gardens, autumn is just as spectacular, especially in terms of foliage.
This was observed last Monday by the fifteen or so spa guests who came from Bagnoles with their guide to visit the Bleuenn garden of Marie-Christine (aka Kitty) and Michel Poirier. A visit that took place a few days before October 5, the day of the Holy Flower (Bleuenn means little flower in Celtic).
Created in 1997, this bucolic space of 980 m2, has grown over time, to now house 600 varieties of flowers, plants, trees and shrubs. Without forgetting the many birds, and Dolly, the house cat, who will celebrate her 20th birthday in 2023.
“The safeguarding of plant heritage is a value to which we are attached and we are always on the lookout for new rare plants” likes to repeat Kitty, who is always happy to share her passion. Last season, we initiated these spa visits with the former Thermes host. Given their success, we continued them this year with Didi, his successor, with a periodicity, every three weeks
A hidden treasure
For an hour, Kitty served as a guide, answering everyone’s questions. Inexhaustible on the subject. “The Bleuenn garden is a veritable open-air library where the book never closes. And each plant has its story. As often, visitors were amazed by this treasure hidden behind this pavilion on rue Martin Luther King.
That day, the autumn weather was perfect for walking through the small paths of this green bubble. Kitty distilled a few anecdotes. “There you have the English Royal Jubilee rose which was brought to me from England by a British visitor. It was created in 2012 for the 60 years of reign of Queen Elizabeth II. I was born on the same day as the queen, April 21, but not in the same year,” she smiles.
A corner of poetry
Before heading back to Bagnoles, visitors were treated to a snack with homemade cakes accompanied by cider. They were also able to appreciate the talents ofOlivia Sita, a 33-year-old Chapelleloise, who writes poems. In this idyllic setting, she read aloud two texts of her composition adapted to this meeting: “Natural path” and “The actions of natural elements”.
We dedicated an article to him in our edition of September 8th. “It’s the second time I’ve come here,” says Olivia. Following the publication of the article, Kitty contacted me. After several exchanges, she offered me to come and visit her garden, and, if I wanted to, to read one of my poems in public. Something that I accepted immediately and I liked it”. The icing on the cake to this visit in a way.
