American garden expert James Golden blogs about two of my gardens!
This is the result of his visit last summer with Carex Tours, led by Carolyn Mullet.
We visited a watercourse garden that we realised last year, and the Japanese Water garden.
I am impressed by his keen eye, the things he notices and the way in which he can then translate them into words.
Quote: ‘Van Mierlo says his gardens are about making connections. Just as his design approach is one of collaboration, a bringing together of parts, making many creative talents work in unison for a single goal, so too aims for all the parts of the garden-stones, trees, structures, paving, water, plants-to achieve a unity of effect and feeling.
I think he certainly achieves that end. These are extraordinary gardens.’
Cool to read. Thank you James!
