Lavender Stripes

January 23, 2012

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think this is a picture of a lavender garden.  I came across this image when putting together my last post about the Landschaftpark in Duisburg-Nord (which is where this was taken). Though I am not 100% sure that is what this is, as I study it, I think I see a huge variety of lavender plants, that have  different growth habits, textures, and color  and the result, when planted in strict rows, totally satisfies my stripe fetish.     (utterly appealing, don’t you agree?)

And if in fact, this isn’t all lavender, I am not sure that is at all relevant to me….because I have already been inspired to plant and grow  lavender (and other plants too) in this way.

    Very sweet. And not far from my place too. I’ll soon have a look on it. Wanted to visit Landschaftspark Duisburg Nord anyway.

  3. Das erinnert mich daran, dass ich dieses Jahr unbedingt den Landschaftspark Duisburg Nord besuchen muss. Dort gibt es nämlich noch viel mehr zu sehen.
