The Gardens of Piet Oudolf

I'm looking forward to checking out the documentary of garden designer and artist, Piet Oudolf.  His stunning, internationally acclaimed designs have graced the High Line in Manhattan, the Lurie Garden in Chicago’s Millennium Park and Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London, which was home to the 2012 Olympic Games.

Looking at his thoughtful works, I feel transported to a dreamy, breathy place where everyone speaks in hushed tones and floats from place to place, almost like waking up in the middle of a Monet painting.

The landscapes he creates are sensitively tuned to the seasonal changes and nothing feels forced, although everything is carefully planned and plotted, it appears very organic, wild and wonderful.

Take a look and float away with this inspiring glimpse into his world....
