When it comes to creativity, no one shines brighter than my favourite plantsman and garden designer Piet Oudolf, who creates visually stunning vistas out of nothing but grasses and seedheads. Here are a few photos of his genius on display in New York’s Battery Park and High Line Park.
For more photos of Piet Oudolf’s work, check out my travel post Parks – and join in if you like. Everyone’s welcome. xxx Ailsa

Beautiful! One of my favorite NYC parks too…
I would love to see and photograph this. As there’s no chance of that I’m so glad you did!
You know, Gilly, Piet has designed a number of amazing gardens in England too – the one I most long to visit is the Millenium Gardens in Norfolk http://www.pensthorpe.com/gardens/millennium-garden.htm If you ever get to visit, take a million photos and write a post about it – for me! 🙂
Interesting, and very lovely… Thanks for sharing! ♥
