First, the citrus collection of the Hanbury Botanical Gardens, near Ventimiglia, Italy. Below the jump, a Givaudan 360° (use your cursor!) video about the citrus collection at UC Riverside. Then, a recipe for “Hearty Salad with Radicchio, Fennel, Grapefruit and Hazelnuts” from Berkeley café Bartavelle (you can find the recipe online here).
When my daughter was born, I would place tiny dots of sandalwood oil behind her perfect little ears and in the folds of her delicate neck. She was the best smelling baby around; the combination of the natural scent of infant and sandalwood was heady, divine, something you could live in forever. It’s an unusual thing, to perfume babies, something that runs counter to today’s heightened wariness of unnecessary exposure to chemicals (though the perfume oil I used was natural, with no additives or preservatives).
We haven’t checked in with the Keukenhof garden in Lisse since March, so here are a few updates. First, an 8 minute 360° (use your cursor!) walk though the garden. Then, below the jump, Managing Director Bart Siemerink talks about the different types of tulips. Last, Gardener Daan shows you the Beach Garden, Mill forest and the fountain.
