Rosemary is a wonderful plant for a lot of reasons. First, it smells really good, when you walk near it, you can just grab some leaves and grind them dish for a good taste. (With the beginning of spring, it will bloom and it is the best moment to harvest rosemary). by Matéo

Oreilles du lapin

While wandering in the garden, I found this plant… It reminded my of one time at my grandparents’ house, when I was younger, because there was the same one. My granny explained to me that it was called « oreilles de lapin » (bunny’s ears) and I never knew if that was it’s real name. After some digging, it appears that it’s from the Stachys byzantina species and in English it’s called « lamb’s ear » so that solves the mystery! by Sixtine

The elephant

I really appreciate this plant, not because it is green, such as the biggest part of the garden, but because it really has the shape of an elephant, with the trunk, the ears on both sides, and his huge body behind. It reminds me an Elmer stuffed elephant that my sister offered me when I was I child. Great memories!

Lemon balm

As the big eater I am, I ate two or three leaves of our lemon balm to prepare my belly for lunch… So delicious ! The taste and smell are easily recognizable, and the lemon aftertaste makes me wonder if I should not grow it at home and use it in all my meals… Photo and caption by Victor

This plant is quite interesting for its ability to run along the ground. Unfortunately, we can’t see a lot of flowers but one is visible enough to be described. It’s a male one because we can’t see a squash on the stem (that is visible for a female one). Photo and caption by Romain


Here is a picture of a rosemary with plenty of flowers! It is in the entrance of the garden and when I arrived, I saw it and it attracted my gaze: it was the most colorful plant in the garden. I smelled some leaves and it reminded me great food I used to eat. Photo and caption by Elise


« This is Borage, a plant whose flower caught my attention because of its striking violet hue, its star shape and its velvety-textured stem. I found it even more interesting when I discovered that it has medicinal properties. I ate one of the flowers and the taste is slightly sweet. «  Photo and caption by Isadora
