Did you know? Monty Don received the
OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire).
Here is Prince Charles awarding the medal at the ceremony last December.
You know how much I admire Monty Don and for me, no one better deserves this honor than him. This man’s personal voyage and how he has transformed gardening for millions of people is nothing short of amazing and yes, even magical.
If you want to know even more about this man, take a look at his Facebook Page!
And, of course, he has a blog titled simply, Monty Don.
And read this:
How about a trip to Provence to meet Monty where he filmed part of the
French Garden series!
It’s a tour organized by BBC Gardeners World, June 3-8. Now wouldn’t that be fun?
And, of course, the very best way to keep up to date is to watch
The program, produced by the BBC, has had a rocky time being shown in the U.S. It was available then it was not, due to third party licensing and copyright. Now, the best way to watch is to
subscribe to Britbox.
Then you will see each new episode as it appears. It is one of my all-time favorite treats to settle down and watch!
However and whatever you watch that involves Monty Don: enjoy every last minute. And yes, you will learn something too….
Did you know that Monty Don designed costume jewellery in the 80s. I remember it well.
Yes, I had seen that. Do you have any??? Oh, would certainly love to see it!
