The Saarphati Park in Amsterdam is like an English park in the sense that it follows the principle of Landscape Design.  Within the park there are footpaths and streams, lawns and lakes and landmark features. In our first picture, you glimpse the classical temple, just out of view in the distance, right.  A short walk further, and you see the feature close to.

Perennials work well in drifts – and the more the better. Rudbeckia fulgida var. Sullivantii ‘Goldsturm’ are so bold, they don’t need a contrasting colour to make them shine. They just stand there, in their thousands, as if to say “Hello, we’re here to make you smile”.
