Monty Dons Adriatic Gardens


What a wonderful start to his visit to the islands of Venice. It bought back many happy memories of when my late husband and I visited the amazing islands of Venice.
I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series.

I will also have to see it on the iplayer. Now that I've read a good report about it I will make time to watch it.
Nice that it brought back happy memories for you :)

Yes, me too as I forgot it was on too!
It must have been nice for you Marjory to look back at this and to have lovely memories, although be it a bit sad.

We loved it too,Marjories,and have been to Venice a few times,and never noticed any gardens at all,they are so well hidden ,aren't they ? The one which has recently been reopened to the public,was still closed ,when we we last there, but I recognise the area.. You have some lovely memories to look back on ,Marjories,and so have we.. We love the Adriatic , and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of the Series .:o)

For those of you who would like to see it,it was repeated on BBC 2 this morning 9am .till 10am..(Sunday) .so I assume further episodes will be too.if you want to watch or record ? Sorry, only just seen the info in the TV pages of a weekend Newspaper.. x

I didn't even know Monty had a new programme on the BBC. I will have to have a look at it on the BBC iPlayer.
