A screen legend’s final performance: Audrey Hepburn in the world’s great gardens.
What’s old is new again! If you can still remember the 1990s, you may recall Gardens of the World, the eight-part PBS series in which Audrey Hepburn, the elegant leading lady of Hollywood’s golden age, took viewers on tours of some of the world’s most notable public and private gardens—including George Washington’s estate Mount Vernon in Virginia, Claude Monet’s gardens at Giverny and Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. Visually sumptuous and profoundly informative, each episode took an in-depth look at a different garden theme, delving into matters of aesthetics, history and environmental significance. The perfect gift for gardeners longing for the return of spring. Available on Amazon.com, new and used, from $14.70 to $49.94.
