The garden is the passion of the houseowner who is a member of the 'Swiss Rose Friends' Society. The main focus obviously is on the many 'Old Roses', growing everywhere around the house and blooming mainly in June/July, while the parterre in front of the house is filled with scented and culinary herbs - and roses again. Among them, some vegetables are thriving in the summer, and when the climate is benevolent, even the grapes manage to ripen in autumn. We are at 1130m above sea level. You may watch deer from the guest room window in the winter, pruning the roses and digging up cabbages from under the snow.
Rudyard Kipling: "Gardens are not made by singing: 'Oh how beautiful!' and sitting in the shade."
Oh dear, you're not very helpful, but still welcome ...

Please enjoy and relax!
