Hi Annie,
Just 3 more days and I'm SPRUNG!!! No, haven't seen Forever Amber. I've watched a few horrible movies that I should have given up on in the first ten minutes. Don't know what compels me to see it through to the end, but I can't leave it Sticking tongue out

When I first started reading your blog you mentioned BBC Gardener's World and I started watching it - loved it, and also share your enthusiasm for Monty Don LOL. Anyway, that first month I way over extended my data limit and had to stop. I now have a much higher data limit and will likely start watching again. You also mentioned, fairly recently I think (like around the Christmas holidays?) another BBC show you liked on You Tube but now I can't remember what it was. If you remember off the top of your head it will save me from back tracking through your posts to find it, although that could be enjoyable too Smiling

Hi Terri, I tend to hit-or-miss with my YouTube viewing, so I'm not sure which other show...I really think the Lost Gardens series is good. That might be the one. I'm fortunate in that I get my YouTube fix via a basic internet connection so no data limit; downside is that there are some delays/buffering, but that's ok. Monty has an older documentary series called Around the World in 80 Gardens that's fun. He's also done a documentary series on Italian gardens that is spectacular. I'm completely hooked on BBC gardening shows. A presenter called Alan Tichsmarch (not sure on that spelling) did a documentary with Prince Charles at his garden Highgrove that was beautiful too.

I am SOOOO glad for you getting to retire and garden full time. I gave myself a full day in the garden yesterday and was thinking about you and how great it would be to spend my days doing whatever I wanted with no looming deadlines.

Hugs, Annie
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

Lost Gardens sounds familiar, I think that is the one. The Highgrove documentary sounds great too. Isn't that where Prince Charles has his Stumpery? I was so fascinated when I read your blog post about your Stumpery. It was a first heard for me of the concept, and I've been planning to do one myself ever since.

Yep, the retirement day is tomorrow. I'll be out of there by 11:00. I am soooooooooo happy that this day has finally come. Thirty four years of long commutes, long hours, and little time other than the weekends to be in the garden. What a different kind of life I'll have now!
