Winter Garden Inspiration: Piet Oudulf

I have been working on making my garden look more attractive during the long winter months. In this week's Home & Garden section of the New York Times, they give a peak into famous Dutch gardener Piet Oudolf's personal garden in an article entitled "A Landscape in Winter, Dying Heroically." His personal garden is only one acre, and it is an inspiration--even in winter. For the full article and slide show, click here:

Piet Oudolf is one of my favorite garden designers. I keep track of some very interesting pages on him:

Kata,

Thank you for these links. I am working on a post about Battery Park, the only Piet Oudolf designed garden that I have visited.
