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.
Our WAWWE class got started on some observations, cleaning, planting, and generally enjoying each other’s presence and the lovely weather outside. We got a bit dirty, planted peonies, sage and mint, learned tool vocabulary and purposed and got some seeds planted for summer. Oh, and dug up piles of dandelions before they take over the universe.
Rosemary is an aromatic plant often used to cook but which can also be used as a medicine. I didn’t know it had medicinal virtues so during the visit of the garden I discovered its “hidden talent”. Actually, I chose Rosemary because I really appreciate its taste and I sometimes use some for cooking. Moreover, I think Rosemary looks really nice, I like the lovely violet flowers.
