If Marrakech is on your destination list, make sure you drop by the Majorelle Garden. This cobalt blue oasis was designed by French artist, Jacques Majorelle. When Yves St-Laurent and Pierre Bergé came across this hidden gem, they decided to restore the garden and opened it to the public in 1947. Yves Saint-Laurent actually lived in that blue house and after he died, his ashes were scattered in the Majorelle Garden.
I arrived at the Majorelle garden bright and early, (it gets super crowded) and tried to capture all its beauty for you guys. The vegetation is incredibly luscious! It’s a crazy mix of giant cacti, so many different succulents and palm trees, lots of tall bamboo plants and large pathways bordered by big colorful planters. Add huge stands of bougainvillea, a large a pond with water-lilies, an amazing blue house with bright yellow accents and there you are, in an exotic Yves Saint-Laurent dream. -Stephanie
