Awakening the senses at the Artbotanic garden
It is on a hilly terrain irrigated by a stream that Lionel Erwerz has modeled the Artbotanic garden, northwest of the Creuse on the commune of Saint-Agnant
de Versillat. This landscape designer graduated from the LENÔTRE (Versailles) and TECOMAH schools has created amazing spaces. Open your eyes, ears and nostrils!
A journey of initiation.
You enter this garden like a sanctuary, after purification in the foot bath. Nothing should disturb the harmony created. To the right flows the stream and we are already ecstatic about the colorful picture of the mixed plants. But a smell tickles our nostrils. It is the caress of English roses. Powerful, fruity and refreshing, their perfume is tinged with a drop of pear wine or a hint of Myrrh It is in this fragrant setting that Lionel has hidden his favorite tree.
Do you know the Wollemia nobilis?
This pine tree that was only known as a fossil was discovered in 1995 in the depths of the Australian forest. A Jurassic tree here? By adopting a Wollemia nobilis, Lionel is helping to maintain the species. It is necessary to admit that it is cracking this pine with the blistered bark and the needles in the shape of feathers.
Two small bridges and then go away Cross the stream and enter the serenity. The Zen garden has been designed using elaborate techniques. The harmony between mineral, vegetable, water releases an energy favourable to the meditation. Here the patio invites you to rest.
Let yourself be lulled by the songs of the birds. Woodpeckers, kingfishers and cuckoos answer to white peacocks and diving ducks. Plumages and antlers give a sonorous and colorful relief to this extraordinary garden.
