Indoor oranges

Another precisely designed part of the gardens in Versailles is the Orangery.

When we were there in April, the process of moving the trees onto this design had just begun. Most of the trees were still in the halls flanking three sides of the square.

The pictures I took were more of the flora, fauna and sculpture, however we also encountered people using them as a backdrop for their people photography. I took them as an opportunity play with my flash setting.

Before being placed on the grid, the numbered pots were initially moved outside against the walls presumably to get used to the alternative environment. Or the gardeners left them where they were when they went on their lunch break.
