Great Gardens: Sunnylands – NOWNESS from NOWNESS on Vimeo.

I enjoyed this short, 3-minute film on Sunnylands, the winter home of the Annenberg philanthropic tribe and host to many heads of state. It provides lots of slow, sensual tracking of the countless succulents comprising James Burnett’s landscape design at this Palm Springs, California property, ideal viewing for a lazy Sunday afternoon. And if you search “Great Gardens” on Nowness’ site, you’ll spend a lot more than 3 minutes burrowing down into the selection which includes Derek Jarman’s garden, Great Dixter, Las Pozas, Tresco Abbey Garden, etc. Happy Sunday!

    Excellent recommendation. Many thanks. But what is that aloe with the chartreuse flowers at 1:30. I’ve never seen that color of flower and would like to get some for my place.

  2. Denise says:

    Jane, to me the flower looks like Aloe barbadensis (Aloe vera!)

    Oh! Tresco Abbey! Mmmmm. I’m going to waste some time here, thanks for the link.

    Serried ranks and symmetry always seem a bit of a cop out to me, but I loved the Pat Moran vid by Nowness. Plenty good stuff there!
