Winter home | Überwinterungsplatz

My flatmate in Berlin likes to have plants around her. Not the tiny little clay pot variety, but big adult plants that can only be hauled from A to B rather than carried. Over the summer, these adult plants (I would be more precise if I could but I don’t know what species they are)…

New plans | Neue Pläne

I have set up a new website; it will be up and running shortly, so keep your eyes peeled and please stop by again at the new location! On the new site I will share regularly the progress in my 2017 project. It’s a really interesting one! I am teasing you a bit here because…
