Thinking of spring.... I love how the gardeners at Het Park in Rotterdam use crocuses in naturalistic, random clusters to welcome spring. By using only one type of crocus in each section of the garden, the result is soothing. elegant, and rhythmic.
According to the Netherlands Architecture Institute, “Zocher’s ideal is to design building and landscape as a single entity. Which accounts for his inclination to work on many country estates, designing both the park and the house; one beautifies the other and they cannot be seen separately.”
