I like the grasses: fun at a Gallery.

December 5, 2014

in General Interest

Yesterday Charles and I paid a visit to the new gallery,  Hauser and Wirth, in Somerset.  You’ll be hearing much about this place as Piet Oudolf has designed a garden for it.

This is not a review – the garden is very new (though of course it has already been photographed and featured in the press) and the light was awful – gloooom.

But we had great fun  taking pictures and thought they’d give you an oversight of what it’s all about. And maybe you’ll find them fun too.

Anne Wareham, editor.

(‘I like the grasses‘ was a comment we overheard in the garden….)
