Dit Eiland


The garden captivates, not only for its nourishing, curative and ornamental virtues but also for its subversion and it's slow rhythm of life and decay. Beyond the enclosed and organised space, the garden is a harbor for blurred, licentious and undisciplined private passions. A place of resistance and dissidence, of refinement as of exuberance; it becomes a poetical context for experiment as well as a living archive, frequented by fox and roe deer, guarded by tawny owls.

Harmony in greens

Spring 2018. It's still early April when this Green Woodpecker decided to visit the lawn, violently hunting the ants who recently became active.  Nature has always got a nice grip on the color schemes, all these greens and yellowish grays could get a little boring in the end... so why not add a streak of the most fiery red to spice things up a bit?

Orchid talk

In the summer of 2017 we discovered an unknown plant spontaneously lifting it's stalk from under the ferns in the front garden. The leaves showed distinctive parallel ribs indicating some sort of orchid. The only thing we did in that particular spot was planting ferns in an attempt to give the needle package under the pine trees a bit more lively appearance. This disturbance possibly triggered the orchid to reappear in all it's glory, leaving us humble & happy.
