After Barcelona, we are headed to Morocco. I am hoping we get a chance to go to Majorelle Gardens, while we are in Marrakech. It was purchased by the late, great, Yves Saint Laurent and his partner, Pierre Bergé in 1980. Additionally, the piece of land houses their collection of Islamic Art. You can see it in color over here.

Wow, I had no idea about this. I def want to see pics if you end up going. The color photos of the garden are stunning. I wouldn't have thought a bright blue could look so chic in a garden!
