Rosemary & Thyme

I've been watching this cozy little BBC mystery series called Rosemary & Thyme on Netflix recently. The protagonists are two lady gardeners who somehow manage to entangle themselves in an elaborate murder mystery with each new landscaping assignment they undertake. The ladies, Rosemary Boxer (played by the sweetly pretty Felicity Kendal) and Laura Thyme (played by the robustly handsome Pam Ferris), are a pair to be reckoned with. Not only do they always create stunning gardens and catch the culprit in the end, but they also confront various personal and romantic complications along the way. Even more than the stories, I really love that every episode has beautifully filmed shots of incredible scenery and absolutely idyllic gardens -- the plant life is treated like a third main character. But my very favorite thing of all is the music.
