You might like to listen to my latest interview in the Designers of Paradise series on #Regenerative culture and processes.
I spoke with Willemijn de Iongh of the Dutch based Commonland Foundation about her work and where she sees us going forward with community-based ecological restoration.

I think you'll enjoy the conversation. Please share widely, and subscribe (it's free) for more!

Busy times, spring! I have my 'new' allotment garden and our community garden group is organising the 'PlantjesDeelDag' (plant swap day) again. It was supposed to be a yearly event, but last year we skipped it. Now I need to have seedlings and cuttings both for myself and for 'swapping'. I had the luck to find something I could change into a miniature greenhouse. See photo.  It was a toddler's play tent, I used transparent plastic to replace some of the sides. It works very well! And some more planters are in the window sil in my living room.

My miniature greenhouse!

Hi! I am also new and I have not had much in common with herbs so far, but I would like to expand my knowledge and skills on how to take care of herbs.
I think it is better to delve into this topic and be able to heal yourself than to take medications that sometimes you don't know what's in them. Team only natural treatment!

Hi Patrycja. I totally agree: herbs and natural treatments, that's the way! Did you find other interesting 'threads' in this forum on that subject?

I happen to make some photos of flowers today. It's because I join a photo-competition, organised by some friends. For the competition I need only one photo, but here I can show more.
Enjoy!

This is 'good king henry' (Blitum bonus-henricus)

Not yet flowers, but soon to come. They are of a kale. The leaf is from a different plant (Chelidonium majus).

Wild violets (Viola tricolor) and dead nettle (Lamium purpureum)

More Lamium purpureum

Apple blossom (Malus domestica)

Some member of the brassica-family (I don't know which) in full bloom

Last but not least: a bumblebee on a wallflower (Erysimum cheiri)
 
What's brown and sticky? ... a stick. Or a tiny ad.
