MEETING – The humorist is a genuine love of poems. In particular, itself, it's just planned and dedicated to a book. Bravo the artist!
Elie Semoun likes to put her hands in the ground and publish it to anyone who wants to hear it. Or rather read it. The new humorist has published Abandoned lake, Ulmer Editions, a way of sharing his passion to the garden with the public. "Yet in my family – Jews from Morocco and Algeria – there was no tradition of plants and animals. I believe that I have a taste of life for aquarium and fish, which I was a bubble when I was My mother dies the year of 11 years. When I create a new "painting" in my garden, I'll find the imaginary world of my childhood, but now they become real. "
His little corner of paradise, as he says, is a permanent evolution. It's planted, tears, replanting differently every plot of land, with successive touches as printer … Sculpture the garden in its image, complex and structure. In addition, he has removed the magnolia that adjacent to the house to design a new constitution on the embankment released, a wedding of asalea, holly without bricks, pants plants (Farfugium japonicum) some of them have left rough. "Every time, I'm telling myself that I do not have a place to change but I always find it."
On November morning, this organized explosive melts in the autumn and autumn. In front of the lake that extends the lawn, golden yellow ginkgo appears to raise the sun, while red maple fires in the shade. When asked if a landscaper needed to support it, he has offended: "I amfreak management I hate to let others do it for me, except my friend Dominique Dumont. He is my manager for twenty-five years, this garden belongs to him as much as me. But, as a rule, I am doing everything myself. " Draw inspiration into a huge library with garden books.
"I've broken three trees since I was there, two magnolias and pumenins. I had to make a place for the ideas I got." And especially removing the 1970s' garden of the previous owners, he hated him. SNCF clusters and crossings have replaced the cement to emphasize massifs, make paths and stairs.
After almost every plant, every tree, remembers a trip – it often comes to the full car of plants – or a friend of a friend. He stops in front of the beautiful creamy stone of Senanque Abbey (Vaucluse) during a visit to the monks who had tried his help, ordered 12 tonnes. Now they form a dry stone wall in the most sunny area. This is where he has set an insect hotel and two spiders. "I only hate one species in nature, here is the Asian hornet, it has disappeared in my nests."
Conversely, a first pond considered too small has become bog, a rubbish of choice for carniface plants. The actor has even set up a waterfront shelter, a greenhouse that comes back from Bali, a luxurious cabin for the child that he's always a bit, who's writing when listening on jazz on a small radio.
How to describe the kingdom of Elie Semoun? At first glance, he inherited a fun mess, incorporated with a bohemian spirit, from the owner's mountain, as shown by the advertising placards organized here and there, the Buddhas playing their headaches with a small cost little. Metal chairs and benches & 1930s were bought by his friend, François Levantal, who shared the stage in the room and ClosetPigchairs with pinned lines greet you with a waterfall, surrounded by moss and water lilies. "It was excavated two years ago. The olive tree arrived in a nursery during a tour of Valencia a little five years ago. It looks like it has been here for 450 years, its age. I like things to look forever. "
From all this an infinite charm arises but in fact, here, there is no room for opportunity, everything has been carefully thought, after choosing, has created. "I spend time in my garden, energy, money. I bring the same care and write my shows"demanding this perfection.
Here he heats in front of a tree with leaves slightly thick and shiny: "I'm proud of it, it's a camphor tree"he rejoices as he roamed the leaf that drives straight away. And as soon as you're sorry for granite (Antenic Dicksonia) that vegetation. "I love girl and euphorbias. I certainly make a mistake by putting it there. I realize that more plants are happy, dissatisfied, they can suffer. So I'll watch them , listen to them, and try to understand what they tell me. "
Elie assures him, he is mad about his garden, he loves to find him as if he were a person, a friend. "I treat it and it's returned to it by its beauty. I do not like the word to keep. I try to give it its freedom, it has a lot of faces and I like it. "
