A view of the decorative French formal style garden of Palais de la Berbie (Musee Toulouse Lautrec), Albi. The building dates back to the 13th century and was for the bishops of Albi - a formidable fortress! It was the first arch bishop Serroni Hyacinthe who created what is now a lovely garden, "protected" by sculptures depicting the 4 seasons. With great care they are gardened organically.
