Invisible World

When one looks at 1 square meter of this place, one cannot see a piece of art, but a small “piece of life”. Hundreds of species are flying on the surface or slithering under the weeds and the “jardin pontanique” is like a huge window on this invisible world. – Text and photos by Charles-Auguste.


There was an amazing visitor one day who loved our bamboo tomato stakes. He (or she) came and went, his lovely thumb-sized body glittering gold in the sun. I still can’t decide what type of dragonfly it is. Any identification help is welcome.

I thought I knew snails. I’ve thrown them over the fences, put them next to the pond and had an occasional one in my plate when in Burgundy. But I’ve never seen snails this big. Les « bourgognes » I was told are the nemesis of country gardens. I guess that’s what we are. How exciting!
