You’re Invited: A Virtual Screening of ‘Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf’

Piet Oudolf is one of the most famous gardens in Holland. It was designed by Pieter Bruegel the Elder (1566–1630) and it’s located near Nijmegen in the province Zeeland. Its name means ‘the garden of old age’.

The garden is divided into three parts: the first part is called the Old Garden; second part is called the New Garden and third part is called the Wild Flower Garden. Each section has its own theme. There are many different kinds of flowers found in this garden, such as roses, lilies, geraniums and others. Some of them have been cultivated since ancient times, while some were brought here from other countries during Dutch colonization period.

The garden is also known for its beautiful statues, which include two bronze figures of women holding hands. One statue depicts a woman wearing a crown with her hair flowing down to the ground. She holds a bouquet of flowers in her hand and looks at the viewer with loving eyes. Another figure represents a man wearing a long robe and holding a staff in his left hand.

His right arm is extended towards the viewer, showing him as being wise and powerful.

The garden is open to public and can be visited from 9 am to 5 pm. The entry price is only €6, which includes access to the museum and all facilities. There is also a small cafe where you can buy delicious drinks and snacks.

In order to celebrate this unique garden, it will be screened for a short time in several locations in the Northern Hemisphere, starting from next week. The event is going to be transmitted through the internet so you can see it from any location as long as you have a good internet connection.

With this new technology, you can actually feel like you’re actually there. So if you have the chance to see this garden in real life then go for it, but if not then watch the online screening to see one of the most beautiful gardens ever made!
