You can celebrate weddings at the hortus,
and for this event some owls were rented !
owls are moving their head very fast
and I didn’t read the chapter for speed settings on my new camera at that time…
a baby one , 20 cm height !
then we went into the warm glasshouse
*** the plants nursery***
Did you also study this plant at school ?
In the biology class, I had to take some spores from the polypode plant
look at it thought a microscope
and draw the cell on a white page .
It was a special drawing white page that fits my small ring binder,
the ones you use only in the biology class.
( the other page were all squared )
Of course , I’d loved that , making the drawings and the caption..
Outside in the garden, in the pond
I have the same plant on my balcony,
slightly smaller 🙂
***In the vegetable garden***
the artichoke of course,
yes a chickpea plant.
I had absolutely no idea it looked like that.
***the cactus, fat plants***
May be this one is the ‘guinea pig’ for making cactus cuttings
( I try once at home but it didn’t work, my cactus piece went try and made no roots)
Did you successfully multiply cactus ?
do you recognize this ?
when your plant stay too long on the same side of a window?
*** cactus nursery ***
they like fun pots at the hortus
I love the fat plants,
I bought a tiny version of this one at the flower market
wait for it !
ou la la this one I like,
with a back flower, it seems unreal but it isn’t .
Before leaving, an orange tree
Visiting the hortus is nice and relaxing,
I would advice to come in spring or summer
then the roserie is in flower…
