"I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills", écrit Karen Blixen et c'est en pensant à cette phrase que l'Adrienne contemple ceci et se dit:
"J'avais un joli jardinet avec une pelouse fraîchement tondue entourée de tulipes, d'anémones et de crocus."
état des lieux le mardi 14 mars
I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills. The Equator runs across these highlands, a hundred miles to the north, and the farm lay at an altitude of over six thousand feet. In the day-time you felt that you had got high up; near to the sun, but the early mornings and evenings were limpid and restful, and the nights were cold. (source ici)
