For us gardenless urban dwellers, when summer garden-envy kicks in, an opportunity to have a good old snoop around other people’s gardens can be pretty irresistible! Luckily, for three days each year during Amsterdam’s ‘Open Tuinen Dagen‘, this snooping is sanctioned and entirely above-board. This year it was held 14-16 June, and it’s always a pleasure and a surprise to encounter the ‘secret gardens’ and verdant lushness that lie behind the city’s stone and brick facades…
