Every August I spend a couple days at the Château Mercier in Sierre, for Vinea, a Swiss wines event. The gardens were built in 1908 and the trees are now magnificent and tall – but so are the roses, some of which are quite old.
The chateau belongs to the city/canton and is beautifully maintained in its original state, inside and out. I go for early morning walks and admire the slanted light on the roses, smell their perfume as the sun warms up the day and enjoy their richer colours as evening settles in.
Les roses au Château Mercier à Sierre appartiennent au jardin construit en 1908 et quelques unes sont assez agées, et d’une beauté qui est magnifique.
