A sign in the gardens at the Chateau de Villandry stated that a very important element in a Renaissance garden is a naturally-covered walkway.  I’m sure it was to keep the sun off of the women’s faces back at a time that alabaster skin was very desirable and not just a curse I live with.  Some gardens have climbing rose- or ivy-covered walkways.  At the Chateau de Villandry, they are covered with grape vines.

And with this post, I will stop gushing about how much I loved the gardens at Chateau de Villandry.  Only because it’s time to move on to some other castles…
