165. An example of a Flemish garden in what is there called the English style (fig. 38.) is given by Kraft: it is of small size, but varied by the disposition of the trees, rustic seats, and raised surfaces; and surrounded, as Dutch and Flemish gardens usually are, by a canal. It was laid out by Charpentier, gardener to the senate of France, in the time of Napoleon.
