Spring lights

When I went to the garden, it was almost all green with very few bright colors and the weather was cloudy. Those daffodils were at the top of the school’s logo, and their glowing color was splendid; they were lighting up the garden. Text and photo by Scenwan.

Asters

These are asters, my favorite flowers from the garden. Indeed, I was astonished by the contrast between the cloudy sky, the green of the garden and the color of these flowers, which make them really beautiful. (photo and text by Eloïse)

Thistle

I took a picture of these thistles, because I really liked the colors and the contrast between the purple, orange and black. They had started to dry out so they weren’t as vibrant as we are usually used to seeing them. I also found that they looked a bit like fireworks! (text and photo by Holly).


Lenten Rose

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).

Symbiosis

I was surprised by the symbiosis between those two trees, one strong supporting and protecting a more stunted with delicate white flowers. Text and photo by Raphaël.

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.

Rose Bush

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.)

Photos of interest

Here are some photos of elements that I found beautiful or interesting during the
visit of the garden. – by Clara

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

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.
