Victor Hugo and a root ball


“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”
― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables


Last  autumn I photographed all the root balls of all the plants in our garden.

This was the root system of what eventually turned out to be a bushy 4 and a half foot tall basil plant that produced some very tender and  tasty basil.
