Combining Interests











I’m crazy about movies — have been since I was a kid, which is undoubtedly a result of the fact that my Dad was also crazy about movies. There’s something magical about being transported to another world for a couple of hours (especially while munching hot popcorn!). As someone who is also interested in gardening, I wondered whether I might be able to combine my interests and did some research on garden-related movies. I was surprised to find quite a few — and I haven’t seen many of them so I guess I’ll be running to the library soon to get them (or maybe on Netflix). If you, too, share my double interest, check out these films:

There are others, of course: Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Little Shop of Horrors, White Oleander, Under the Tuscan Sun, Grey Gardens, It’s Complicated and practically any period piece from England (e.g. Howard’s End, Pride & Prejudice, Great Expectations) will feature gorgeous gardens and ladies with big gardening hats, pruning shears, and a basket of lovely cut flowers.

Now, if I could just set up a projector, screen, and popcorn machine out in my garden, I’d be all set for the summer!
