005 Jardin Montebello, CherbourgThe Horticultural Society of Cherbourg opened this garden in 1872 exclusively for its members but today it is open to the public.  Enter through the small iron gates and past the small brick chalet with its visible wooden beams.  The 19th century style is still maintained.  It is quite small and easily overlooked considering it lies somewhat hidden in a residential part of the city.  Nevertheless, a variety of exotic plants can be found here such as camellias, magnolias, bamboos, palms and rhododendrons.  This early on in the spring, I was surprised to see how many things were already in bloom or blossoming. 007a Jardin Montebello, Cherbourg009a Jardin Montebello, Cherbourg009 Jardin Montebello, Cherbourg010 Jardin Montebello, Cherbourg013 Jardin Montebello, Cherbourg
