>The Odilarium – #998


I have a feeling that the Odilarium was originally intended to be a swimming pool, but somehow ended up as a sunken garden.
It’s one of the many surprises that greets you when you wander through Odile Landragin’s herb and aromatics garden in Gonsenheim.
It’s not constructed for the vertically-gifted like myself – I think that eye-level is intended to be somewhere at or below the rim to provide the ideal perspective.
Being somewhat brobdingnagian, it comes up to my waist.
Anyway, this is the view for the Lilliputians among you.
There’s even a ladder to help you escape….
And this is where the plughole should have gone.
(Funny – I always thought that water circles the drain in a clockwise direction in the Northern hemisphere. Maybe not…)
