At last I had a meeting with Carrie Preston , something I had been looking for a long time. This American Garden Designer living in the Netherlands had often managed to get my attention. On the initiative of Carrie we met at the ‘Bakker’s Winkel’ on the site of the former gasworks in Amsterdam. It was rather busy in this trendy restaurant but without effort I was able to recognize her among all these people .
Carrie was sitting at a table at the back of the restaurant behind her laptop with her lush dark blond curls and with a serious expression on her face and as time went by our conversation became more spontaneous but the serious expression remained , especially when our conversation came to her great passion: desiging beautiful , livable and functional gardens .
