A pink flower in the garden with thick, zigzag leaves. Its leaves look like they are made of plastic. I hardly see this kind of leaf with a beautiful pink blooming flower. In my impression, this kind of leaf belongs to aloe and its family, which should be bigger and thicker. (text and photo by Chaopeng)


This is a pumpkin which grew in the garden in October. It brought color to the garden that was mostly green because there are no flowers or other vegetables during this season. It is was reminder that the spooky season was approaching… (text and photo by Nolwenn)

The Pond, part 2

Finally, the pond holds water, is beautiful, attracts wildlife and has proven that we don’t need plastic to have a pond.

New Pond

With Vaclav, the M2 students of EUP, renovated our pond without using any plastic. Using a mixture of sand, bentonite, bricks and shale, it appears to hold water!


A lavender. A brave aromatic plant which traveled from the sunny south of France to the cold north, here in Champs sur Marne. It adapts to its environment, requires no special care and offers a taste and a scent most used for bakery, perfumes, honey-making… Its unique purple flowers are a symbol of Provence.

I came across this beautiful flower in the garden and, on doing more research, I discovered some really interesting facts. It is called « Borago officinalis », it is edible and is used in salads, cooked dishes and drinks. It even has medicinal uses. It comes from the Mediterranean region, but it can be found in gardens all around the world. (text and photo by Milagros)

Oak Tree

This is an oak tree and it is the masterpiece of the garden. First, because it is the highest plant of the garden and so it protects it from the wind or other dangers. The oak tree is also bringing nutrients for plants and animals with its roots and through its falling leaves and tassels. Finally, it is a symbol of the garden and is always beautiful and impressive.

Here is the proof that nature’s beauty will always find a way to express itself!  (text and photo by Yassine)

Cherry tomatoes

Cherry tomatoes are some of the sweetest (and the cutest) tomato varieties. Usually red, they can also be yellow, green, purple or even black just like this one (that was quite yummy). (text and photo by Mathilde).
