 Dear Lauw..

Shall we start a photo album of the worse public roundabouts of SE France ???
I have already a list of "nice spots" with the worse imagination and taste.

Luc that fully agrees with Lauw statement...

Dear All,
I was last weekend in England (Surrey south of London).  I visited this area
in almost every month of the year. This time again I found myself in the
middle of bulbflowering (to make it even better the weather was beautiful).
Not only at Wisley (where I go faithfully everytime), but also in public
parks and private gardens there are naturalised flowerbulbs everywhere:
Crocus, Leucojum, Iris, Snowdrops; Cyclamen coum, Narcissus (just starting)
etc. and every month it is different again.
 Then I come back to earth in Marseille airport: a great mediterranean
climate,  but public roundabouts  decorated  without imagination using
pansies and coloured cabages. Made me realise how much work and effort there
is to do here in overcoming the general ignorance regarding naturalising
bulbspecies in public parks and private gardens .
  Greetings from the south of France
