Majorelle Blue – Tour Yves Saint Laurent’s Moroccan Gardens

majorelle-gardens-6

Amidst the fresh greens of thorny cacti,  towering bamboo, flowering lilies and ancient palms shines a dominant cobalt blue with flashes of sunny yellow.  Marrakech’s botanical garden designed by French artist Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) revolutionizes the way we think of color.

Bright potted plants of yellows, blues and greens are scattered throughout the garden. Vines, ferns and hanging plants terrace overhead and birds fly back and forth to treetops as they fill the silence with a sweet song.

Tourists with cameras flock at every corner of the Majorelle Garden capturing the vibrant colors and unique textures that fill the creative masterpiece.  Hidden throughout the garden are names and initials of recent travelers carved into the cacti. The garden has been open to the public since 1947, and a host to Majorelle ceramics, jewelry,  paintings and Islamic art.

The soothing waters and refreshing colors offer a serene beauty and sense of relaxation. The garden seems to exhale a tranquil breath, and travelers are able to unwind as they wonder around the for hours.
