Jardins de la Pen­sée or Gar­dens of Thought, is the theme of the 27th edi­tion of the Do­maine de Chau­mont-sur-Loire In­ter­na­tional Gar­den Fes­ti­val. Among this year’s prize-win­ning gar­dens is Livre de Sable, or Sand Book, gar­den (pic­tured) by the ar­chi­tec­ture col­lec­tive Moon­walk­lo­cal and land­scape ar­chi­tec­ture col­lec­tive Paysag­istes Sans Frontières. The gar­den cre­ates a desert-like walk, in­ter­spersed with ar­chi­tec­tural blue bushes. The blue is the colour of the gar­ments worn by the men of Chinguetti, in north­ern Mau­ri­ta­nia, who pro­tect pre­cious Ara­bic manuscripts in Mau­ri­ta­nia’s desert li­braries.
