Curse of the Were Rabbit

I love movies and gardening. One beautiful blend of the two is "The Curse of the Were-Rabbit." I had forgotten how much I love this movie, the characters, the setting, and the unabashed (yet gentle) mocking of the Brits and their gardening habits. The puns come fast and furious and every time I watch this movie I see more details. The attention to the smallest touch is so thorough.

I love the Anti-Pesto issued garden ornaments and I’m really tempted to make a gnome with red light eyes. Maybe with a motion sensor to trigger the light-up eyes. I’ll probably just make an Anti-Pesto warning sign for my plot.

I’m also really digging Victor’s ubiquitous polka dot scarf, so classy. I saw something very similar on Sartorialist and it’s been hanging around in the back of my head ever since. After all there’s no reason why you can’t look good when you’re moving dirt around. I had a vintage bandana of my grandfather's that had an awesome polka dot pattern but I recall wearing it to death too. Also Gromit’s ever present knitting needles thrill me, knitting continental style too I might add! I might be easily pleased but as far as I’m concerned Wallace and Gromit can do no wrong. This movie is probably one of my favorites of all time.

I'm in for the grand wishes; I want lady Tottington's greenhouse.

I agree! The greenhouses make me green with envy.
