I visited Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. It’s a garden that was established by French painter, Jacques Majorelle. Jacque Majorelle bought the land in 1924 and opened it to the public in 1947. The garden is filled with many kinds of interesting plants such as cactuses, bamboos, palms, etc. The garden was later purchased & restored by Yves Saint Laurent & Pierre Berge. The garden has a Cafe, a gift shop & a Museum of Moroccan Art. It’s located on Rue Yves Saint Laurent. It turned out Yves Saint Laurent loved Marrakech and owned a house there. His ashes were scattered in this garden and they have a memorial dedicated to him.
Anyways, I loved the quiet atmosphere and looking at many kinds of cactuses. I never thought there were so many varieties of cactuses. There were kinds that I only saw in American Western Movies so it was very cool to see them up-close. 🙂 After having a relaxing walk in the garden, I went to the Cafe to drink Moroccan Tea. I don’t know why but after looking at the cactuses, I felt inspired. I want to have my own cactus garden now. 😛
