For the second time we welcomed a group of very enthusiastic gardeners and craftsmen from abroad in two of my gardens. I’m proud my work was selected for the garden trip through our country organized by Carex Tours, led by the famous American Carolyn Mullet.
We visited the stream garden and the Japanese water garden.
It was a very special morning with a nice group of colleagues, we could really inspire each other.
The American garden expert James Golden was part of the tour and wrote a blog about my work.
I am impressed by his keen eye, the things he noticed and the way in which he put it 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.’
Thank you James, and thank you all for your visit, enthusiasm and praise. What a boost!
