When I read an article in The International Herald Tribune with the title ‘I’m trying to see these movies. If you want to talk, go home’, it reminded me that it is usually this time of year when an avid movie buddy and I begin our annual whirlwind of seeing as many movies as possible prior to the Academy Awards. And as tradition goes, a few days before The Academy Awards, my friend sends out ballots where all of us movie lovers make our picks for the ‘best of the best’ in several categories.
As a movie lover, I’m aware of the impact that certain movies have had on my unconscious over the years. And off the top of my head, there are at least a few that have been inspirational and influential in my garden making. So, on that note, rather than naming our favorite picks for the Academy Awards of 2009, I thought it would be fun to see which movies have inspired us garden bloggers in our garden dreaming, designing and planting.
