Today I want to show you the garden of the B&B we stayed at when we were in Dijon. The guy who runs this place was really friendly and his English was good, I prefer to speak French in France as I speak it well enough to make myself clear, when I was 18 I lived and worked in France for 6 month’s so I have no problem with French. This B&B was really a gem, an old big house with 3 guest rooms and 1 guest suite. Every place was really nicely decorated and so was the garden.
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
THIS WAS A CORNER IN THE DININGROOM

Enjoy your garden ! I miss mine ! Thanks for stopping by, it is much appreciated !
I am in France at the moment on holiday. We spent the first days of our holiday in Dijon, a small city in the east of France, known for it’s strong mustard. They have a beautiful old city center with many old building and art everywhere you look. We had a beautiful B&B on the outside of the city center and it had a beautiful garden ! Did you know France had the most visitors in the WORLD ?!
As pictures tell you so much more than words, here are some of the pictures I took.
BUILDINGS LIKE THIS ONE ARE EVERYWHERE IN THE CITY CENTER.
THE BUILDINGS ARE ALL VERY WELL RESTORED
I FOUND THIS ONE VERY FUNNY
We also visited the botanic garden in Dijon.
