A folly in the gardens of the Petit Trianon, Versailles, France.


A folly is a decorative and often extravagant garden structure.

Follies, which are meant to catch the eye and accentuate the landscape, are often built to resemble historic or exotic structures, such as Greek temples, ruined castles, or Chinese pagodas.

Karen wants to install a folly in our Napa Valley garden in the form of a miniature White House. She always did have presidential ambitions.
