Your glazing is new and your plumbing's strange,

Don't know if all 18,000 panes of glass in the restored Palm House (just visible above) are new, nor whether Le Nôtre (who designed the gardens at Versailles and who laid out the lawns in this Italian Garden in 1735) took any interest in plumbing.

But these alliums (?), I suspect, were not planted then.
