A château is never finished

There's always construction going on somewhere. That's a good thing in that monuments like this are being preserved and cared for. The down side is that sometimes what you want to see is temporarily closed, or stunning views are obscured by scaffolding. Such is life.

We saw many workers in the gardens cleaning up after some heavy damaging rains that fell just a few days before our visit.

The part of the building on the left in this shot is the south façade of the château's central wing. It's the location, on the main floor, of the queen's apartments, which were closed for renovation. You can see the construction barriers and the scaffolding on the outside of the building.

The palace's south wing is on the right, stretching toward me. The galerie des Batailles (Hall of Battles) is behind the big windows on the main (middle) floor and runs just about the entire length of the wing. Behind where I'm standing is the orangerie from yesterday's post.
