Documentaries about Great Garden Designers

I am so excited to find some great videos about some of them most amazing gardens and gardeners in the world. The series has 13 episodes and each is a visually rich documentary – about a half hour long.  Check out this list of titles:

The Green World of Fernando Caruncho (I watched this one just now on Joost) – really good!!
Gardens and Squares of WEST 8 – can’t wait to see this one as I used to live at W8 6AD
The Eden Project of Tim Smit
The Mobile Gardens of Atelier Alias
The Healing Gardens of Topher Delaney – Ohh and looking forward to meeting her at Architectural digenst show later this week!!
The Private Jungles of Patrick Blanc
The Experimental Gardens of Vladimir Sitta
The Zen Gardens of Shunmyo Masuno
The Tropical Paradise of Made Wijaya
The Enchanted Gardens of Ivan Hicks
Charles Jencks Garden of Cosmic Speculation – This guy is so interesting…a physicist like myself who made something utterly unimaginable.
The Water Gardens of Anthony Paul
The Plant World of Breimann & Bruun

It looks as if most of these are available to watch by registering with  OFF The Fence.   It is going to take some time to watch each one… I will have to pull myself away from American Idol… but I am really looking forward to all of them.

A Tale of Improving Weather, Gardening and Anaphylactic Shock

The snow is piling up (over the windows at this point) and my cabin fever is turning into a strange and crazy thing. I think I might be developing photokeratitis. We’ve run out of firewood and the oversized roof-cicles are making me feel like I live in a cage. So it is no wonder that…

My wife asked me as we drove with our four kids from Maine to North Carolina, what I would like for Christmas.
