From Kim:

The photo above and left were taken at Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech.  This stunning garden is a true oasis in this ochre city, filled with magnificent cactus, palms, water features and cubist architecture.  The property was created by Jacques Majorelle, a French artist who moved to Morocco and pursued his true passion; painting.  In 1917 he purchased the property, built an artist studio and began the gardens that were an expression of his other passion; botany. Eventually Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Berge bought the property and beautifully restored it and also created a magnificent museum for their collection of Berber Artwork. Closer to home, a visit to Lotus Land is like going on an exotic holiday, with many luxuriant gardens.  Ganna Walska and Jacques Majorelle seem much like kindred spirits.
