A visit with Piet Oudolf.

Last weekend my friend and I went on a pilgrimage to see Piet Oudolf´s private garden in Hummelo in the Netherlands. If you´re not familiar with Oudolf, he is a rather famous garden designer known for his organic prairie-style planting schemes. He uses a lot of tall perennials and grasses, all planted in natural drifts. I think his gardens are very beautiful even if I prefer my garden to be more traditional. My friend and I had been talking about visiting his private garden for some years now; this being the last year it is open to the public we finally pulled the trigger. I´m so glad we did! The garden isn´t huge but you can spend hours there. Fun little story: On our way to the garden I spotted Piet Oudolf in a bakery in Zutphen (very beautiful town btw) and I was quite star struck! My kind of celebrity sightings! There was no need to be so excited though because an hour later there he was, standing in his garden and talking to the arriving visitors. Haha. Anyway I let the pictures speak for themselves. And if you´re considering to visit yourself, run don´t walk!

Very beautiful plants. Wonder what plants are those with the little balls. Lovely colors and textures.

Thanks for sharing the photos of this garden. These great swathes of the one plant are beautiful. Wild but structured. I was interested to read there that the garden isn't huge.
