They had the warmest, most loving, relationship. They really had the 'secret' to an intimate marriage. In fact, I was so impressed, I encouraged my 19 year old daughter to see the movie, if for no other reason than to observe the relationship between Julia Child and her husband.
Although they spent most of their time in Europe, Paul and Julia would also spend summers in Maine. Julia made her first trip there in 1947, visiting Mount Desert, where Paul's family owned a 20 acre parcel. She continued to test and write even while visiting Maine. And according to her Brother-in Law Charles Child's book "Roots in the Rock", she used a stove nicknamed "John Henry", to cook her creative dishes.
Julia Child has an old-fashioned, English-style look, filled with 35 petals or more, on a perfectly round and densely bushy plant. Blooms are produced in abundance, several to a stem in typical floribunda fashion. Their butter-yellow color will blend well with any landscape and the spicy licorice fragrance the blooms emit will be enjoyed by all who pass. The rounded 3 foot bush has super glossy green foliage that is very disease resistant. Works well as a specimen planting, along a border or even in a container.
