The gardens of Luçon are also a marvel of western Europe. This space was donated by a local dignitary named Dumaine: the condition was that the garden would be forever maintained and forever open to all comers at all times. The city of Luçon holds hard to that promise, and every season takes this French paradise to a new level. This year the theme honors the death 100 years ago of a nearly native son: Jules Verne. Jules Vernes is from nearby Nantes, but all in Vendée think of him as one of their own. This work shows an octopus as one sees them in a book like "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea".
