è un piacere conoscere il tuo blog, in questo post poi segnali molti link interessanti pe questo periodo, me li leggerò. Io sono romana ma abito a Strasburgo, ho un minuscolo balconcino dove dorrei mettere un po di piante di odori che non mi muoiona durante il freddo inverno, tipo roasmarino, alloro, e cos altro? Grazie mille, un saluto!
