le jardin potager
I did a magnificent find last Wednesday.
Between a stack of old school posters on the attic of a nearby 'brocante' barn, I came across an original vintage French school poster of a vegetable garden from the fifties.
I had a déjà vu, because the resemblance to the Villa Augustus garden is striking!
The poster was made by Hélène Poirié. It's called Le Jardin Potager and she has made several large posters and illustrations for schools.
The colors are still so fresh and bright.
Obviously the vintage school poster was given a special place in the house...
