Fleur Noire

I love stepping into a place that takes my breath away.  If there’s rosé to go along with it – all the better.

Here’s another little boutique oasis in Palm Springs that I had the pleasure of visiting.  Have a peek at a few photos I took when Chris Pardo, the owner, took me on a little tour.  

A Tall Tale (taken from their website):

While traveling in France searching for vintage furniture we happened upon a roadside cart selling flower seeds. Not being fluent in the language we believed we purchased a vintage lineage of seeds. Once back in Palm Springs we planted seeds on property, unbelievably the flowers kept blooming black. Dismayed we had one horticulturist after the other come evaluate the phenomenon with no success. Finally after researching the small town near where we purchased the seeds we came upon an obscure landscaper who we believe they called an expert, the French man named Jacque Cousteau (no relation to the famed underwater explorer). After months of negotiating his travels to the states, he immediately identified the problem was with not the soil but the seedlings which were the fabled fleur noire. The only antedote… Rosé all day.
