Garden of the Month,  August 2003

Open Air Museum 

The Openluchtmuseum (Open Air Museum) near Arnhem, Netherlands is a recreation of dutch life, over the centuries and from various regions.  Historic gardens, 85 buildings of all sorts, and windmills on the 100 or so acres are some of the features.  These sample photos from April depict a few of these.

For a quick overview, check out the Slide Show.
