Monty Don's Italian Gardens - BBC2 UK

Post by Merlin on Fri 15 Apr 2011, 21:06

Monty's starting off in Rome tonight but showed clips of him from some of the other programmes...one of him on Lake Como going past Mr Clooney's house.

On the advertising blurb it said that he'd be "pointing out Clooney's garden". I wasn't sure if that meant he'd wave vaguely in the right direction while going past on a boat, or if he'd actually be in the garden.

I'm guessing he won't be going inside, right?

Probably not sounds like they will just be looking over the wall. George isn't exactly a keen garden type who would be the sort to take people for a walk around his pride and joy. Now if it was about motorbikes!

He was on a boat and the guide said...that's Mr Clooney's villa and Monty said...I can see why he lives here....

That's probably it LOL....I just like gardening programmes/programmes about Italy/programmes featuring places I've been to (Rome/Florence/Lake Como)...so I'll enjoy it anyway...the George connection is just an nice little extra..

What? You guys don't think that George tiptoes through his own tulips?

I saw that that as well, and it seemed to me that Monty might get a bit more mileage out of Gee's garden. He did say they would be exploring the rich & famous's gardens, so you never know. I did pause the HDD at that spot trying to work out how Gee can have "birds" ( and yes I do mean feathered ones!!) travelling through his bedroom, given that the villa is 4 storeys high? Does he have a bedroom at the back where the land is lower?? The pool must be at the back as well?

Judging by fluffy's comment above yours, Atalante, we're going to have to wait for the birds to learn to fly. Wheee!
