Dainty little rose

You dainty little rose seem nice and snug by the fence, as if keeping a kind eye on the herbs and the sprouts… And when evening falls, I picture you whispering stories to your rapt neighbours, in the quiet breeze… But tell me, what is your story? (text and picture by Guillaume).

What is that?


A garden is not always pretty as most flowers decay, becoming sometimes unrecognizable. That is the case here: these are the remains of white roses which lost their color and scent. They now look more similar to a wasp nest than to a flower. Let’s hope that instead of decorating the garden they will soon be used for the compost. (text and photo by Sohalia).

The Last Rose of Summer


This is a shiny red rose that stands out over all the green around it. The most fascinating thing that dazzled me was the fact that this is the last rose alive in the garden and the visit was only 2 days before the end of summer, and that it resembled me one of my favorite violin pieces, “The Last Rose of Summer.” (text and photo by Karsion)

Aster


When I was in the “Jardin Pontanique”, I was struck by this little flower. First, I though that my vision failed me. But after taking the flower in picture, there was no doubt on, this daisy is purple. Indeed it is an Aster, like a purple daisy. (text and photo by Loucas)

Would still be as sweet

This is a photograph of a white rose that is located on the left side of the willow tree in the pontanique garden. I find those complex flowers absolutely magnificent. Roses are relatively easy to grow as they do not need a lot of water and care which makes it an even more interesting plant! (text and photo by Maxence).

A rose by any other name

I took this photograph of a red rose I saw in the garden today. I found it beautiful. Although its scent was weak, its colour was bright and uniform. It is a lonely rose covered with some rainwater droplets which reminded me of the morning dew. (text and photo by Erwan).

Some flowers in the middle of the vegetables

The garden had suffered a wet summer. Nevertheless, in the middle of this green panorama, there were some purple daisies. Some had a brown heart, others a yellow heart. The photo shows the harmony in these colours, on a slightly poetic green background. (text and photo by Katia)

Well done, Mother Nature!

I find the yellow of these daffodils so mesmerizing. It’s like a golden treasure in the garden. I found it funny because these flowers seem to be “looking” in the same direction, as they were a family. Just magnificent.
Well done, Mother Nature.
