The Rose Bush


The Rose Bush looks pretty and let us hope to find lovely roses. But as soon as someone dare to touch it, it reveals its best arm against the enemy: thorny spikes. Theses spikes aren’t really big, but they are particularly sharp. My only advise is: Watch out, you might get burned! By Raphael

Herbs and alcohol

From Matthieu: I’ve taken this picture of chartreuse because I’m fascinated in the alcohol created with herbs.

The Rose

From Alexandre: I have chosen the picture of a rose, because of the contrast between the green background and the red of the flower. It is gorgeous.

Captivating petals

From Nawfal:

Despite its  beautiful captivating petals, my fingers got hurt by a thorn when I tried to hold its stem. This made me think of all the subtle techniques that nature uses in order to protect itselfNawfal.

Garden potential

From Célia: CeliaI chose this one because I love roses and I think it is a nice place that reflects the potential of the garden.

Leaf contrast

ClementFrom Clément:

Here is the picture I took in the garden of the school this afternoon. I really like it, because some of the leaves of the plant are red, whereas they are supposed to be green, like the other ones behind them. In a word, I like the contrast these leaves make.

Red plants

From: Suzanne 

I took a photo of some leaves on the top of little tree that were red. There is not a lot of red in the garden, that’s why it struck me. There was one of the only red roses of the garden next to it and it was as if the little group of leaves wanted to imitate it.

The garden has an impressive diversity and even if at a first sight it seems to be dead and dry, it contains a lot of flowers and beasts. Why not to put a lemon verbena tea tree in itSuzanne?

Our new students from We Are What We Eat discovered the garden for the first time and took pictures of things they found interesting.

This is the first of many posts of their findings.

From Valentin:
I took pictures of mint and dill herb, because these plants are easy to maintain and are useful in the kitchen. Dill can add flavour to a dish and with fresh mint we can make tea. Everyone could easily grow these plants in pots, or on the edge of a window for example.

One last dig

Our school year is drawing to a close and we’re probably having one last dig with the students before everyone leaves on their internships. There was more potato hilling, border repair and onion and rhubarb distribution. We hope to see everyone again in the fall.
