Astonishing, harmonious, filled with exemplary ideas and inspirations
Whoever thinks that a garden can be enjoyed only from spring to fall will discover in this book that the opposite is true. The garden here, in the raw region of Osnabruck Land in Germany's lower Saxony, is not blessed with some particularly favorable climate. But its gardener has designed her blossoming kingdom in a manner as individual as it is tasteful, with many innovative ideas and unusual combinations of plants. She outwits autumn with ingenious combinations of perennials, bulbs, herbs, and vegetables and enacts atmospheric paintings of green, silver, and her beloved violet. Even in otherwise dreary winter, shaped hedges and woody plants create a scaffolding for impressive sculptures along with evergreen plants. Numerous seating places ranging from the conservatory to pleasurable gatherings underneath ancient trees extend the season.
