Haworthia marumiana ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

Qualche tempo fa ho comprato delle piccole piante grasse e dei cactus per una composizione per il mio davanzale. Ormai queste piccole piante sono cresciute molto, nonostante la mia mancanza di cure. In realtร  sembrano prosperare nonostante la mia mancanza di attenzione e di annaffiature. Una pianta in particolare, la Haworthia marumiana, sta estendendo il suo territorio ben oltre il luogo in cui era originariamente … Continue reading Haworthia marumiana ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

My favourite parks ๐ŸŒณโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒณ

St James’s Park in central London is one of the best curated and interesting urban green areas, against the royal backdrop of Buckingham Palace and the scenic perspective of The Mall. Originally marshland in between royal residences, it was drained and landscaped to host exotic animals and plants by orders of James I. Green Park is the smallest of the Royal Parks in London, with … Continue reading My favourite parks ๐ŸŒณโ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒณ

Le mie succulente preferite ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

Ho cominciato a collezionare succulente solo qualche mese fa, dopo aver realizzato che i miei prolungati periodi di assenza da Londra non mi permettevano di mantenere in vita delle piante nel mio appartamento. Le uniche piante che erano riuscite a sopravvivere, anzi a rigoglire, senza cure ae senza annaffiamenti erano le succulente. Ormai ho in casa una bella collezione di oltre 30 piantine di varie … Continue reading Le mie succulente preferite ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

Succulent show โค๏ธ๐ŸŒตโค๏ธ

A few days ago I went to my first botanical show and it was really a revelation. For months now I have been developing my personal collection of succulents, stemming from the realisation that these are the only plants that can survive my prolonged periods of absence from home. Because these are plants whose natural habitat is the desert, they actually thrive without water and … Continue reading Succulent show โค๏ธ๐ŸŒตโค๏ธ

The park featured in this post is not one of the many famous ones around London but it is the closest to my home and the one I go to very frequently for walks and runs.

Haworthia cymbiformis ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

My recent passion for succulents is bringing me to develop a little collection of plants, that hopefully will survive my prolonged absences and can cheer me up every day as I admire how fast they are growing during the good season. From a specimen a bought only a couple of months ago, I have been able to propagate already a couple of rosettes and planted … Continue reading Haworthia cymbiformis ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒต๐ŸŒฑ

Green Park is the smallest of the Royal Parks in London, with 19 hectares of land between Buckingham Palace and Piccadilly. It is the Royal Park with less landscaping and planting, as it features just mature trees and some naturalised narcissus. It is a nice connecting area between the busy streets around Piccadilly and the other two nearby Royal Parks, St James’s Park and Hyde … Continue reading Green Park, London ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ’‚๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐ŸŒณ
