Gardens of the World ... And Mine

This photo of my garden a few summers ago

"WE ALL HAVE WITHIN US A NEED TO CREATE BEAUTY.
And we all can in a garden, however small.
It is this need which has written the history of gardens.
By looking at our world through its gardens today,
we reaffirm the simple human capacity
to create beauty on this earth."
~ Audrey Hepburn



The film series Gardens of the World was first aired in 1993. It remains a timeless tribute to some of the most beautiful gardens of the world as well as to that lovely lady, Audrey Hepburn, who starred as narrator, along with Michael York. It's a series I love to watch again and again.




Wishing you glimpses of beauty in your world today!

  3. Brenda, your post today and the wonderful video was absolutely beautiful! Sigh, I feel so relaxed now. :) Watching it just reset my whole morning! Thank you for sharing it with us. I would love to see the series some day. Audrey Hepburn is one of my favorite actresses. I love the serene and poetic way she speaks about each garden. Have a lovely day ahead! Delisa :)

  5. Lovely, Miss Hepburn came to life when describing tulips in Holland. I had not known that she spent her childhood there.

  6. This spring I've been more cognisant of the beauty of the flowers and trees than I have in the past. Thank you for sharing pictures of the beauty that God has created.

  7. Good morning, dear Brenda -

    Your beautiful bookmarks arrived on Monday. One is tucked into Dickens' Bleak House, and the other is on my desk awaiting its assignment.

    Thank you so much. I appreciate the sentiment on each one, reminding me to let Christ's fragrance permeate my life.

    I noticed that Vee received hers at pretty much the same time - so there's not much difference in the postal service between Alberta and the NE USA versus Alberta and Vancouver Island!

    I hope your day is wonderful. Thank you once again.
