We’ve been giving our Snow Queen, the only surviving variety of passion flowers beside the more wonted and still tiny Caerulea that I was trying to crossbreed with its parentage Clear Sky (results to be proclaimed at a later date), absolutely free range this year and she grabbed that opportunity willingly with an obscene ostentation of flowers for us to still enjoy even though autumn is knocking on every door, grabbing onto everything within her reach, to beautify its otherwise pale features.

She by now covers two thirds of the part of Les Pierres we vociferate to be the cat cave, the room I share with nature. And with Safran, obviously, because I should have clarified: the room they share with me.

Trying to make ones life sustainable is more than a personal choice and almost automatically leads to a multitude of decisions you have never even thought of before. On this website we share what works for us, or woefully no longer works, obviously without claiming the same for you.

We hope that our journey towards a supplementary comprehensive celebration of nature’s beauty might just clear a pathway forward for you too, perhaps challenges a revealing reconsideration, or simply provides for an equally indispensable diversion.
