Jardine Majorelle//Garden, Yves Saint-Laurent Morocco

After spending the day outside the city, we decided to end our day at the incredibly beautiful Jardine Majorelle, 12 acres large, designed by the expatriate French artist Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s and 1930s. The special shade of bold cobalt blue which he used extensively in the garden and its buildings is named after him, bleu Majorelle—Majorelle Blue (wiki). 

 

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 (wiki). 

We then got a little coffee and dessert and headed off to our new Riad.
