Landscape with Sown Grasses and Few Trees

Plants in Nature, Agriculture, Culture


Another boring plants about site?

Yes. Undoubtedly yes. This is our basic intention, this is our basic aim and we will do everything we can to achieve it. However, in this short introductory note we will not unroll our strategy. In fact, we will not unroll anything. Nothing well rolled, folded, hidden and concealed. But we will pick up the sleeves, we will take the hoe and the tiller and we will start digging the earth. That is our basic intention, that is our basic aim. With great pomp and ceremony we start digging the earth.

“Kalliergeia” is an emotional thing. It joggles you out of the standardism of everyday life, out of everything being the same. It yanks you out of your body and your mind and throws you against the wall.

Surf in “Kalliergeia” website has given me the stimulus to deal with the research of the apple tree.

Is there a herbarium without plants?

In the ‘Herbarium’ section, there is a great reversal: the plants are withdrawn or appear sporadically only to serve the great plan that is no less than the absence of a plan. An absence of monologues, sometimes interviews with remarkable people, and sometimes tributes around and over objects, events, persones and situations.
