Horta e Jardim


"We can never have enough of nature." - Henry David Thoreau


"It is a wholesome and necessary thing for us to turn again to the earth and in the contemplation of her beauties to know the sense of wonder and humility." - Rachel Carson


"The greatest change we need to make is from consumption to production, even if on a small scale, in our own gardens. If only 10% of us do this, there is enough for everyone. Hence the futility of revolutionaries who have no gardens, who depend on the very system they attack, and who produce words and bullets, not food and shelter." - Bill Mollison


All the problems of the world can be solved in a garden. - Geoff Lawton

Toutinegra-de-cabeça-preta (Sylvia melanocephala)

Data do registo: 08.05.2020

As toutinegras-de-cabeça-preta e os melros têm-nos regalado os dias com banhocas diárias e prolongadas.

No caso das toutinegras, o banho consiste num vaivém frenético entre várias idas à água e várias pausas nos arbustos para cuidar das penas.

Ora, os arbustos estão mesmo em frente à janela do nosso atelier! Temos vista privilegiada para as observarmos. Enchem-nos de gratidão por este mundo vivo!
