Giardino Segreto di Tramontana.

Al tempo, (già nel 1680 si avevano notizie della sua esistenza) lo chiamavano il giardino di cipolle, per la presenza di tante bulbose da fiore, o il giardino de’ fiori a tramontana, perché era posizionato lungo la parete nord ovest di quel casino nobile che oggi è noto come Galleria Borghese.

Questo spazio verde, uno dei tre giardini “segreti” di Villa Borghese – gli altri sono la “Meridiana” e il “Parterre”, rispettivamente dall’altro lato e nell’area retrostante il Museo – è stato da poco restaurato e sarà inserito in un programma di visite guidate, pensate principalmente per il vasto pubblico che affolla la Galleria, a partire da settembre 2016.

Il giardino segreto, retaggio dell’hortus conclusus medievale, e chiamato così perché cinto da mura, o da siepi, si vede dalle finestre del Museo: è un rettangolo lungo quasi 90 metri, scandito da un’armoniosa successione d’aiuole; la simmetria severa del giardino all’italiana, in questo appezzamento relativamente grande, s’apprezza come un delicato divertissement. Costato 60mila euro, il ripristino del Giardino segreto di Tramontana ha permesso di rimetterne assieme la flora sulla base del progetto originale: quasi 1000 le piante, tra cui 300 tagate gialle, salvie ornamentali e due gruppi di Hibiscus mutabis, il cui fiore cambia colore al variare delle condizioni di luce, durante la giornata.

Tramontana Secret Garden.

At the time, (already in 1680 they had news of its existence) called him the onion garden, for the presence of so many flowering bulbous, or the garden of 'flowers to the north, because it was located along the northwest wall of the mess nobleman who is now known as the Galleria Borghese.

This green space, one of the three gardens "secrets" of Villa Borghese - the others are the "Sundial" and the "Parterre", respectively, on the other side and in the area behind the Museum - it has been recently restored and will be added to a program of guided tours, mainly designed for the broad audience that crowded the gallery, starting from September 2016.

The secret garden, a legacy of Hortus conclusus medieval, and so called because it surrounded by walls, or hedges, you can see from the windows of the Museum: is a rectangle almost 90 meters long, punctuated by a harmonious succession of flower beds; the strict symmetry of the Italian garden, in this plot relatively large, as people appreciate a delicate divertissement. Cost 60 thousand euro, restore the Tramontana Secret Garden has permission to transmit with the flora on the basis of the original project: nearly 1,000 plants, including 300 yellow tagged, ornamental sage and two groups of Hibiscus mutabis, whose flower color changes to changing light conditions throughout the day.

Asa nenorocita de gripa rar vezi! Nu inteleg cum e posibil sa ma tina intr-o febra continua de 37-38 de grade. Nu e mult, dar e suficient cat sa ma scoata din sarite si sa nu ma lase sa dorm. Dupa ce ca, de fel dorm prost, visez prostii, na ca de 4 zile totul este la superlativ, in sensul rau, bininteles.

 

Stiti ce am visat aseara? Rau, rau, rau, am si am tipat la fel de rau, rau, rau... Era un caine negru care m-a muscat atat de tare incat am tipat de cred ca am deranjat si vecinii de sub mine (ei de fel sunt "deranjabili" din orice, pentru orice zgomot mic, bat in tevi). M-a muscat nenorocitul de caine de mana dreapta. Ciudat mi se pare, eu iubesc toate animalele, nu stiu ce o fi avut asta negru cu mine. Bine, noaptea a fost lunga, au mai vrut cativa sa ma omoare in reprizele scurte in care am reusit sa adorm. In rest, am avut atata treaba... Am facut parada modei in pijamale. Am facut multe ture la bucatarie in speranta ca daca mai beau ceai si daca mai iau o lingura de miere, imi trece. Ei bine nu, in schimb, dupa fiecare drum la bucatarie simteam o usoara imbunatatire a starii, problema e ca nu dura mult.

 

Am mancat chiar si patrunjel crud, pur si simplu, am rumegat ca o caprita iarba, respectiv patrunjelul. Sa nu duc lipsa de vitamina C, am zis.

 

In alta ordine de idei, nu a fost chiar atat de sumba noaptea, asta pentru ca fiecare drum la bucatarie era totusi imbucurator. Mi-am facut un ceai foarte bun. Am cumparat de la "Fares", sunt mare fan "Fares", am cumparat ceai de lavanda. Foarte bun, nu are un gust puternic si nici un miros care sa te deranjeze. Prefer ceaiul de lavanda sau levantica (e acelasi lucru) pentru ca este relaxant. L-am combinat cu un alt ceai de salvie. Deosebit si el. Ceaiul de salvie, este si el bogat in proprietati benefice organismului. Salvia este un bun antioxidant, ajuta inima si decongestioneaza organele, mai ales bila. Bine, au multe alte atribute pozitive atat ceaiul de lavanda cat si cel de salvie, nu o sa va incarc acum cu toate.

 

Foarte sanatoase ceaiurile, in general. Si mai sanatoase sunt daca le bei regulat, nu ca mine doar in caz extrem.

 

Va tin la curent, astazi o sa incerc o alta varianta babeasca. Sper sa ma ajute sa scap de gripa asta nenorocita. Kisses.

Today I donated my tin foil to the re-cycling man in the office.

 

Around a years worth of sandwich wrappings have gone into this peice of modern art, and has caused a fair amount of discussion about what is actually inside my foil - I can confirm it is just foil!

On Infraspecific Variation: In the past numerous varieties were given of this species, but at present two subspecies are generally accepted: the nominate subspecies and Salvia argentea subsp. patula. Most of the old varieties have been synonymized with Salvia argentea subsp. patula. At present I do not have enough literature/information to see what mine are (does it have something to do with the leaf shape?).

 

On Distribution: The distribution of this species is split into two well defined populations; subsp. patula in the west and the nominate in the east. As I cannot I.D. the plant down to subspecies the distribution as given in the tags to the right is for the entire species. The species was originally described by Linnaeus in 1762 (in the second edition of the 'Species Plantarum'), where Linnaeus noted 'habitat in Creta'. This is odd, as this plant is now not believed to grow in Crete, although it does grow in mainland Greece.

Salvia argentea subsp. argentea - Syn. S. verbascifolia sensu Hayek, S. tmolea.

Albania: Occurs in Albania.

Bulgaria: Occurs in Bulgaria.

Greece: According to the 'Flora Europaea' this species does not occur on Crete. It has been found up to 2200m elevation in Greece.

Italy: In Italy this plant is known to naturally occur in the following regions: Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata, Apulia (Puglia), Campania, Molise and Abruzzo; this comprises of the smaller part of the southern half of the Peninsula. It has been found up to 1400m in Italy.

Macedonia: The plant is said to occur in the former Yugoslavia. As Macedonia is nestled in between Albania and Bulgaria at the same latitude, the holotype for the synonym Salvia argentea var. macedonica was found here, and there is a Macedonian name for this plant, its occurrence here seems acceptable.

Montenegro: The plant is said to occur in the former Yugoslavia, but it is unlikely to natively occur further north than Montenegro, considering its distribution in Italy.

Turkey: According to the 'Flora Europaea' this species does not occur in Thrace (European Turkey), however, Greek (Φιλοτης) and Turkish (Tübives) sources show that the species does in fact occur in western and northern Anatolia. It has been recorded in the following vilayets: Ankara, Antalya, Bilecik, Bursa, Çanakkale, Çorum, Denizli, İzmir, southern Niğde and Manisa. This plant has been found to occur up to 2000m in elevation in Turkey.

Salvia argentea subsp. patula

Spain: Common throughout entire Spain in alkaline soils (Flora Iberica).

Portugal: This plant has been recorded numerous times from Portugal. It probably occurs elsewhere, but it is most recorded from the Alentejo (esp. Baixo Alentejo (for example Moura), also Alto Alentejo (Elvas, Juromenha in Alandroal)) and Algarve (Burgau).

Morocco: Present in Morocco. Recorded in the Meknès-Tafilalet, Gharb-Chrarda-Béni Hssen and Al Hoceïma region. Not recorded from lowlands in Morocco. The synonyms Salvia argentea var. mesatlantica, S. argentea f. macrantha and S. argentea var. fontanesiana have been given for this subspecies in Morocco.

Algeria: Present in Algeria. Recorded in Saida and the Aurès region. The synonyms Salvia argentea var. pomelii, S. argentea var. aurasiaca, S. suaveolens, S. aurasiaca, and S. foetida have been given for this subspecies in Algeria.

Tunisia: Present in Tunisia. The synonym Salvia foetida has been given for this subspecies in Tunisia (see Algeria).

 

Problematic:

France: In some (German) sources said to be a rare species of France, this does not seem to be true; Flora Europaea does not include France among the distribution and more importantly, Tela Botanica does not have a single record of this species in France. The nominate form does occurs in Italy, but only in the southernmost portions of the Peninsula, not near France, whereas the Pyrenees seem to prevent subsp. patula from coming in from Iberia.

Kosovo: Possibly occurs here in the wild. No accurate information.

Serbia, Bosnia & Croatia: Idem dito.

 

Habitat: Stony hillside meadows in Greece; disturbed places and at the margins of horticultural fields in northwestern Africa, usually on basalt in Morocco; volcanic soils and rocky bluffs, often associated with Pinus sp., in Turkey. In Spain it is recorded to usually grow in Spain in alkaline soils, in Portugal it has also been recorded growing in alkaline soils and on the open slopes along roads. Usually not found very near the sea or ocean, or at low altitudes, but has often been found on highlands not far from the sea.

Sage {Salzia officinalis).I, inflorescence ; 2, lower part of stem with leaves. This is a shrubby perennial, sometimes treated as anannual, with rough hoary-green leaves, and blue flowersvariegated with white and purple and arranged in spikedwhorls. Medicinally, sage is slightly tonic, astringent,and aromatic. It was esteemed by the ancients, but atpresent, though officinal, is little used as a remedy exceptin domestic practice. The great use of sage is as a con-diment in flavoring dressings, sausages, cheese, etc. InEurope S. pratensis, the meadow-sage, a blue-floweredspecies giowing in meadows, and S. Sclarea, the clary,are also officinal, and the latter is used in soups, but thetaste is less agreeable. The ornamental species (w^hichinclude the two last named) are numerous, and in severalcases brilliant.

SAND KLITTER (SAND DUNES)

Death Valley, sand dunes are less common than might be expected. Five widely separated dune fields exist in the national park--yet they account for only a fraction of the total acreage. Sand is scattered throughout the desert, but in only a few places is it gathered by the interaction of wind and mountains to form dunes.

 

Winds blowing through Death Valley are slowed here at the Mesquite Dunes by the changing shape of the valley and towering Tucki Mountain. The weakened winds cannot carry their cargo of sand any farther. Quartz grains, scoured from the surrounding mountains, compose the deposited sands. While winds constantly shape and reshape individual sand dunes, the dune field itself does not move.

 

Moderate winds blowing predominantly in one direction form transverse dunes. Winds blowing from several directions create non-migratory star dunes. The development of different dune types here indicate a complex wind flow pattern.

DEATH VALLEY

Death Valley har været scene for guldminedriften, cowboy film baggrunde (John Wayne var en hyppig gæst til byen Lone Pine til film westerns), og hårde kampe over ejerskabet af vand, der strømmer gennem Owens. Kørsel gennem det udtørrede luften på vej til Death Valley, kunne jeg smage støv på min tunge-den søde tang af ørken yucca, Pinon og salvie.

 

Death Valley i Californien har to yderpunkter: Badwater, det laveste højde i kontinentale USA på 282 meter under havets overflade, og Telescope Peak, en 11.331-mund peak blot en halv snes miles fra Badwater. Det siges, at den højde gevinst fra Badwater til toppen af Telescope Peak svarer i omfang til at stige af Mount Everest, som det skyder op fra det tibetanske plateau.

 

Den store centrale Rift i Death Valley er et lavtliggende, utroligt tørre ørken, der modtager næppe målbar nedbør hvert år. Det er ikke et sted, der glæder sig over livet, men livet i utallige former Ekes en svag eksistens på et sted, at når sommeren temperaturer over 120 ° F. Death Valley Nationalpark er kun en seks timers kørsel fra Los Angeles, og de enorme mærkeligt Mars-landskab synes øst op og faldt i Californien som en vedtaget parken fra en anden verden.

 

Death Valley National Park er hjemsted for den største vildmark område i den nedre 48 stater. Bortset fra områder i Alaska, er der ingen steder i USA mere fjerntliggende, øde og tom, end Death Valley. Der er et par må-ser for Park. Den ene er Zabriskie Point, som trofast die-hard Star Wars-fans vil genkende som baggrund, der anvendes af George Lucas for ørkenen planeten Tatooine. Badwater er et fedt sted at besøge, og den smule vand, der strømmer der er intenst salt, og stadig mirakuløst støtter liv. Den hårdføre Death Valley pupfish (Cyprinodon Salinus Salinus) padler omkring innocuously i de lavvandede, blod varmt vand her.
