Warning, I haven't reread or edited any of this, so my apologies if it is one big rambling, unreadable mess. But if I waited any longer till I had time to write something perfect it would be June 17th 2011 already. (Yes, that's the tenative date, so mark your calenders.)

Teyler Museum


Three weeks ago we went with Marilies to the Teyler Museum to see an exhibition about "Royal Gardening". The light that day was incredible and the museum felt like everything a museum should be. I was suddenly reminded of walking through the Natural History Museum in NYC as a kid and getting lost in between the vitrines full of minerals and stones and other such goodness.

Article in het Financieel Dagblad

I still need to scan it, but yesterday there was an article in het Financieel Dagblad wherein I and 4 other garden designers were described as being part of a new movement of garden design in the Netherlands, a movement that combining a strong architectural quality with natural planting and following in the foot steps of Piet Oudolf.

One of the things I love about Facebook is that people post pictures like these below:





I am not in this second one, though I suspect I am somewhere in the room. What I like the most about this picture is seeing Mrs. Carlson, a good friend of my mother's and the mother of one of my very best friends from childhood. She looks so young and angelic almost in this picture. She is the one with the dark hair wearing the light yellow blouse and beige skirt.

Happy Easter!
