busy week: a visit by ‘growing a greener world’

photo by Joe Lamp'lYOU NEVER KNOW who will show up in my backyard. No, it wasn’t the black bear again, and hundreds of Open Day visitors aren’t due till Saturday, the final garden tour of 2014. This week so far it was friends bearing not gifts, exactly, but gear: the Growing a Greener World TV crew, replete with cameras galore. Seeing them made me remember the segment we shot here a year ago—when Jack the Demon Cat, RIP, got his moment of cinematic fame. Watch that one now in the player below.

Host and executive producer Joe Lamp’l took the photo above, by the way, with director of photography Carl Pennington also in the frame.

The show will air in December, as the season finale, I believe, and will also feature Mya Thompson and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Exciting!

And P.S.—I don’t usually use the vintage Chinese dining-room chairs, like the ones co-executive producer Theresa Loe and I are sitting, as outdoor furniture. I haven’t gone totally mad—yet. By the time this week is over, with the added chaos of very cold nights that have me dragging pots in and out and in and out and…you get the idea…I may indeed be.

    I loved the show you did last year … I may have to watch it again! So, this means a new upcoming show on Greener World?

    Thank you, Margaret, from the bottom of my heart, for that video. I planted every inch of my space (with the exception of Mother Nature’s old growth forest) from how it would look through the windows. I have never ever had affirmation of that idea. It just made sense to me. You made my day!

    I just happened on to Greener World (first time) today 10/4 and saw the above interview with you. Nice job, especially the part about plant colors relating to or giving you ideas for your home. Will be looking forward to the Dec update.
