Before renovation...

"The house was called Grey Gardens because of the color of the dunes, the cement garden walls, and the sea mist."

Gardens of Marqueyssac

"The town of Vézac in the Dordogne region of France is home to one of the world’s most magnificent landscapes, the famed Gardens of Marqueyssac.  These stunningly sculptured landscapes wrap around a 17th century chateau that sits perched above the picturesque Dordogne valley.  The bubbly, rounded forms of the garden are carefully manicured by active attendants, maintaining a design that was first developed over 300 years ago."

Garden view from the open porch of a Japanese tearoom. [possibly Nagasaki environment, 1863-1873]. [Photo, hand coloured albumine print, from series of 42 prints at Spaarnestad Photo, by Felice Beato, Kusakabe Kimbei or Raimund baron von Stillfried.]

Taken from the flickr account of the National Archives of the Netherlands. Really beautiful vintage photographs from 19th/early 20th century Japan are the latest addition to its photostream.
Yeah, so this should probably go into the film_stills community, but not really. I thought this movie was going to be much better than it was; this is definitely the best part of the movie. I guess I liked this scene so much because it is very Barry Lyndon-esque, and very The Shining-esque. I guess it is very Kubrick-esque (God, the love of my life), but every movie made after Kubrick is Kubrick-esque. I am biased, give me a break. Also, I'm in the process of getting sauced by myself, which is only a good idea and only acceptable while being over the age of 21. Right? Whatevs, I have no shame.

HGTV is doing a "special presentation" called Keys to the Castle. Every time I see the preview for the show I see these really spiffed-up rooms and YES, FORMAL GARDENRY. So, I can't wait to see it. I hope it's good. I'm talking Barry Lyndon good.

First airs on September 17th at 9PM. That's this Sunday.
Check it out! and keep in mind it will be cheesy because it's on HGTV.

Darth enjoyed gardening - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever Zen Gardens Make Me Angry - Threadless T-shirts, Nude No More

Bonsai Gardener - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever DEMISE OF MR.FLAMINGO - Threadless T-shirts, Nude No More

Sumo's garden - Threadless T-shirts, Nude No More

These are all I could find that have anything to do with man-bridled vegetation, there may be more. I remember requesting a notice of reprint for the Darth one. Hahaha, but I still didn't buy it. I'm not a big t-shirt wearer, I admit. Not unless it has a camel on it with the phrase "where it's @" on the back. And a little cigarette pocket on the front. UGH, I loved that shirt.

TMI: I had a black Camel© shirt circa 1995 up until about three months ago. I tore it up to be used as part of my octopus "sculpture" for my sculpture class. I mean, the shirt had holes in the armpits and a few bleach stains. Plus, I figured it would make my octopus have some sort of symbology to it. Right?

When I first saw these I got really excited, but they've been sitting in my computer for a year and I have kind of lost my arousal for themCollapse )

My daddy cancelled subscription to House&Garden because he deemed it too "fancy, frilly, gotta have a gimmick." I agree with this assessment but the pictures of rich people's gardens and homes were worth it. Lust for money, lust for gold, lust for all things which we can't hold!
