Parc de Saleccia, Corsica

 Photos of the 'Valley of the Oleanders' at the seven hectare Parc de Saleccia Botanic Garden at Ille-Rousse in Corsica.
It is that time of year when Le Tour de France gets underway and I stay up way to late to be able to function the next day in anything other than a bleary eyed way. Stage 1 from Porto-Vecchio to Bastia on Corsica, which was on SBS1 last night "live", was a feast for lovers of Oleanders like me. They lined the streets of small villages and were trained as standards appearing like big rosy coloured lollipops along the route.
