Land of the FairiesThe Beauty of Herrenhausen Gardens
Image details - Land of the Fairies
This photograph shows the Berggarten´s much admired steppe garden on a summer evening. It is an interpretation of the treeless, rather dry grass landscapes of Europe and Asia. Delicate Stipa grasses with blue perennials like Perovskia elevate the planting scheme.
It took a few visits to achieve this, first the grasses and perennials had to be at their best and then I had to catch the right evening light that would shine through the plants and give the whole scene this enchanted, fairy tale like atmosphere.
