Apertures are typically designed in patterns with a large arch at the base, a long rectangle above, and a punctuating small window at the top. The French are masters of such architectural rythms.
Arches are typically designed in threes. This is a winning architectural feature and probably dates back to creation itself: "Father, Son and Holy Spirit".
A flurry of glorious flowers in bloom, is contained in perfectly straight box hedges. Gravel pathways lead to the palace of Versaille.
