This plant is a Lenten Rose. It has a few distinguishable features: the flowers face
downwards while most other flowers face the sun. It is also poisonous (it probably
won’t kill humans because a lot of it would have to be consumed but can kill
small animals like dogs or cats).
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.
I choose a rosebush because it’s the most beautiful thing I’ve seen in the garden. Its flowering period extends from May until the end of October, so it is certainly the last rose of the year. And, to talk about the story of rosebush, originally it is a wild plant and it was first cultivated in the Middle Ages. Its flowers symbolize grace and beauty. (text and photos by Mathilde L.)
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
I chose these little flowers because in this season, they are the most coloured things we can observe. It is all the more interesting since they are very little in comparison with the other plants of the garden and thus, they are not the first thing we see in the garden.
