Last Sunday, we visited the house of George Sand, the prominent 19th century French author(ess). The house itself was very grand (she was a very succesful writer) and the gardens, while past their best, nonetheless still had some interesting flowers in the beds, including this. I have no idea what it is, but it’s very pretty:
