Jacques Majorelle had a certain fondness for a particular cobalt blue that came to be known as Majorelle blue. Many people (okay, maybe just the girl in question) thought that this color had healing properties, since it was sure to cure depression just upon gazing at it.
There were 350 varieties of plants in the Majorelle Garden. (The girl thought about counting them all but was known to get her numbers confused after 237.) The plants came from five different continents -- it was a well traveled garden, you see.
Upon inquiring about the price of the house, the girl was told that it was for sale for$14.03, exactly. She emptied her piggy bank and moved right in with her family. And they lived happily ever after. (Disclosure: This girl was known to fib quite a bit but I am quite sure that this part of the story is true.)
