What a special time I had today! I went to see the movie
“Five Seasons: The Gardens of Piet Oudolf”
If you are at all interested in gardening, in color, in texture, in what makes people do what they do….then take a look here at the trailer:
Oudolf was the landscape designer behind The High Line in New York, with much of his inspiration taken from his earlier designs for the Lurie Garden in Chicago. But, of course, it is his lifetime of garden design that lies at the heart of all his projects.
The movie follows him at his own house and gardens in the Netherlands, to Texas, to Chicago, to Paris; from his early years when he wasn’t sure what he wanted to do to his present age of 74; letting us see his own ‘seasons’ and where he is now.
It is a fabulous documentary and something I highly recommend . See it if you can!
HERE is a list of screenings, both past and future.
The summer is flying by, but as promised, I will be here from time to time!
I just may have another “flower” recommendation for you next week…
Thank you for letting me (us, your fans) know about this!
Summer is definitely flying by, I can’t believe it’s almost August! I always love to read your posts. Design is always interesting to me whether it’s indoors or out. I always envy those who can grow a beautiful garden.
I would LOVE to see this!!!!
I’ve heard nothing but great thinks about this movie. Unfortunately, it’s not showing anywhere close enough not to involve a lot of time in the car. I’m hoping it’ll be made available through other channels one day soon.
Where did you see it? I am definitely going to check it out! Thanks for sharing the info!
Claudia: I had seen it in Cary, NC. The list of theatres is on the link: but there just are not that many. I would bet it will be available on YouTube or Netflix or something eventually. You would just love it!
