Lemon balmy times

I realised there was a lot of lemon balm (in the garden), which I really loved since it reminds me of my home in Colombia (it is quite common in the area, or at least I know I had already smelled it there many times)

Backyard Composter

We encourage ENPC students to use the backyard composter. Your food scraps will be transformed into compost with the help of humidity and aeration. The waste is converted into a perfect fertilizer for the plants of the garden! – from Manuel

Teamwork

This team and others have managed to draw the garden back to its former beauty and appeal. After a lot of scratches, nettle stings and general dirty fatigue, this crew incorporated last year’s Meunier dorm compost (thanks!) into the soil and got in some onions, radishes, lettuce and more. Nothing like teamwork to get the job done.

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?
