the fragrances of a flower garden

My beliefs made me reflect on my work
and the meaning that I put in the choices and actions that I undertake.
The idea of developing a garden to meet my daily needs
is making its way and little by little, this garden is growing.
in permaculture, near Figeac, carefully chosen varieties, such as
a collection, I select the colors, the textures of which I have

In the fall, I plant perennials, foliage hedges, spring flower bulbs.
In winter, which is calmer, I select the varieties of annuals that will be planted in the spring.
Such is the life of a flower garden…
