Ce jardin est aussi isolé qu’il est somptueux. Construit plante par plante avec un amour immodéré de la nature et du paysage, il est le paradis de sa propriétaire, Caroline St Clair et Saint “ST”, n’allez pas écrire son nom autrement.
Tout est orchestré avec brio, rien n’est laissé au hasard et l’impression de nature s’il elle est réelle est le fruit d’un travail quotidien. Pourtant elle n’impose pas, elle protège les faibles des forts, une Robine des Bois en quelque sorte.
Cette passion du jardin, elle la partage avec celle des chevaux, mais la lutte des territoires est farouche, et au final qui des chevaux ou du jardin gagnera sur l’espace vital de Caroline… à suivre.
