Portrait of a Garden
A search for meaning, companionship and the perfect ingredients... In a picturesque garden on a grand country estate, two gardeners, long-time friends, tend to the espaliers. Surrounded by vegetable patches, citrus trees, the orchard and lush grapevines, they talk about food, the weather, their craft (which is quickly disappearing) and the changing world around them. For fifteen years, they’ve been working on the pear arbor. But will it finally come together this year? And what about the harvest, will it be ready for the end-of-season banquet? A wondrous gift for anyone interested in nature, food or the organic world, PORTRAIT OF A GARDEN is a beautiful, transcendent viewing experience.
