It’s been a very busy winter here in SW Ontario as my husband has retired and we did a bit of travelling – spent a wonderful month in Destin, Florida with out beloved puppy – golf, walking, site seeing and beaching. The month was topped off with my son and grandsons coming for almost a week to enjoy a bit of sunny warmth before heading back to a cold and wet March. Sadly that month was spent at my father’s bedside as he fought a valiant battle against cancer. He passed away March 26th. I’m just beginning to feel the warmth of April and have had a chance to dig away in my garden – something which rejuvenates my soul every spring. Another way I love to get into gardening is by watching some of my favourite gardening shows online – specifically BBC’s Gardeners World.
Last year, I was so frustrated with YouTube as it wasn’t allowing me my weekly indulgence of watching BBC’s Gardeners World! What would my Saturday or Sunday early mornings be without my weekly dose of what is arguably the best gardening show in the whole world???? No Monty, no Carol to start of the weekend. My coffee grew cold trying to find it, only to be frustrated that if I did find the show it would be of such poor quality I couldn’t tell the tulips from the daffodils.
Well, no more!!! This year, I’ve discovered a new channel on YouTube – Wildlife Conservation. It’s filled with wonderful British and Australian shows – mostly gardening! The quality is incredible – HD format, no fuzziness, great sounds and quick streaming. This is one happy gardener!! I’ve even been known to jot down some ideas and tips while watching this informative program.
Here’s a sample of this year’s season, their 50th!!!
It’s so easy to subscribe to the Wildlife Conservation channel. There’s a little button under the video feed on the YouTube page that says “subscribe”. All you do is click on it and you will instantly get notifications whenever a new video is uploaded to this channel.
And if you’re a fan of those great British home renovation shows, Wildlife Conservation has some of those too! So this Easter weekend, spend an hour or so getting into gardening mode by watching one of the best shows out there!! Looks like I’ll have lots of time to catch up on past episodes as it’s forecasting rain all weekend.
