Saturday MONTY DON’S FRENCH GARDENS
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.
