What a surprise to find such a beautiful rosemary in the Jardin Pontanique. As I come from the South of France, I am used to finding rosemary in arid lands, which this garden is not. Yet, it was in very good form, maintaining pretty little blue flowers, and giving of a wonderful smells. (text and photo by Titouan)

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.

From Matthieu: I’ve taken this picture of chartreuse because I’m fascinated in the alcohol created with herbs.
Friday was a day of poetry, invention and medicinals in the garden. Three different project groups from the English section shared their work on a lovely sunny if pollenous afternoon. We had Wordsworth and Dickenson, thyme jelly and cold angelica tea and inaugurated the « indestructable » information stand made from a reused bridge structure and pallet wood. There was a fun exchange about allergies and lots of shared kleenexes before the rain which cleared the sky.
