What I've been watching.

Sharing time.

We've been watching the BBC documentary series "Around the World in 80 Gardens and it is fantastic! We've seen three so far (Central America, Australia/New Zealand and India) and are loving it. It's kind of a garden/travel show and covers everything from huge well known gardens (the Taj Mahal?) to people's backyards. Flowers, vegetables, spices, trees... It's so fascinating learning about the gardening history of different areas as well as they're modern gardens. Highly recommend. I believe it's currently showing on HGTV on Friday nights.

Last night we went out to see The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and we both loved it. The story is about a man who is born old and ages in reverse, becoming younger as time passes. Strange? Yes. However it's a really beautiful story about his life and epic romance. Very thought provoking, emotional and enjoayble. Yes we Both liked it :P It's not a chick flick. It's also not short (2 hrs 45 min) but we're a fan of long movies and were enthralled for the whole thing. Amazing story, even better acting.

Otherwise I have been catching up on Greys Anatomy (and this season? strange). And Craig's been watching the Australian Open. Good times.

While on the subject I am choked that Voyage of the Dawn Treader has been axed. I was really looking forward to it.
