There were so many positive comments, and so many requests to post regular updates, that I decided to dedicate a special page on my website to it.

I warmly invite you to take a look, and if you want to stay up to date with the latest news, sign up on the news page for a news update by email.

Did you know that you can make a delicious tea from the leaves of the rhododendron?

Photo 1: I plant an apple tree. The second specimen of Malus domestica 'Red Belle De Boskoop', our favorite apple !

And let's be clear: every leaf from which you can make a delicious tea is also edible as a vegetable. More on that soon !
