Day 47. Gardens of the World with Audrey Hepburn

I was thinking about gardens and roses today. You may wonder why I'm talking about roses in October; after all, many people in northerly climates have probably put their gardens to bed a while ago already. Usually we would be too, except we've had such warm weather this autumn that my roses are still in full bloom. What a treat!

Which reminds me, have you ever had the chance to see Audrey Hepburn in the wonderful Gardens of the World DVD series? A timeless work of art in which Ms. Hepburn reminds us how much we need gardens and flowers like roses to keep our souls and our society well.

"I must have flowers -- always, always!"
~ Claude Monet, Artist

Today, if you need a few minutes to unwind or envision something other than the piles of work staring at you, why not click on the 7-minute trailer below and take a leisurely stroll with Audrey through beautiful gardens of the world. The photography is so beautiful, you'll come back refreshed and ready for whatever is on your slate for today.

Wishing you glimpses of heaven in unexpected places,

  1. Ooooo Brenda, Audrey Hepburn is marvelous in that series.

    It's hard to imagine that she's gone and that that series was filmed more than 20 years ago. For it remains timeless and fresh in its message, and I believe it's needed more than ever in our fast-paced, climate-damaged, agriculturally rearranged world of the 21st century.

    Something to be so grateful for today....
