Satur­day MONTY DON’S FRENCH GAR­DENS

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PROGRAMS -

ABC1, 6pm

Monty Don’s charm­ing lit­tle se­ries about French gar­dens wraps up tonight with the best episode of the bunch. The af­fa­ble host vis­its some of the coun­try’s most cel­e­brated artists’ gar­dens and ex­plores the in­flu­ence th­ese artis­tic out­door spa­ces had on the rest of the coun­try. Im­pres­sion­ist painter Claude Monet’s gar­den is one of the most fa­mous thanks to his iconic de­pic­tion of the lush back­yard land­scape and pond cov­ered in wa­ter lilies. Monty has the plea­sure ex­plor­ing the gar­den to­day, which re­ceives over half a mil­lion visi­tors a year. He also vis­its some con­tem­po­rary gar­dens to see how styles are evolv­ing.
