HD photograph of Terrasse du Jeu de Paume boxwood hedges looking south easterly - Page 300
We were on the Terrasse du Jeu de Paume in a small garden area with its boxwood hedges, next to the former indoor tennis court pavilion turned into a museum within the Tuileries Gardens, when we took this photograph looking in a south easterly direction, and if you look to the left of the image, you can see the top part of a monument, which is located in the main part of the gardens on the northern side below the terrace.

Even though it was Queen Catherine de Medici that instigated the start of the palace and these gardens, you will find that over the years they were altered by many subsequent kings of France, with the main one being King Louis XIV, who had the landscape architect Andre Le Notre redesign the grounds, with one of the aspects being to utilise terraces as well as hedges, which could be designed in patterns or like labyrinths, just like you can see here.
