|Von tales of the nightingale|
Went out of the city today to arboretum Kalmthout for the "planten dag". Searching for plants which grow well in the shade. Have a really nice, big terrace but never sun there. The sun stops in front of the terrace. Really a difficult thing to find nice and even flowering plants. The window-sills in my bath- and sleeping room are full with plants, no place there anymore.
Today it was paradise for me: found 8 plants, all from Asia and Mexico which are growing perfect in the shade-there is even a tree under them, but still very small. Waiting for the big garden, once-hopefully.
I like the latin names a lot.
From top left clockwise:
Maackia amurensis-China tree!
Epimedium amanogawa-Japan in Deutsch Elfenblume
Yerba buena satureja douglasii-Mexico tea
J. asked me if I was high from nature today, because I explained him every single plant with total enthusiasme.
I think I'm high. Nature is fantastic!
