The Secret Garden

“And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles.”
"The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnett

Inside my own garden walls (picket fence) I have many little secret hide-aways. The raspberry patch is tucked into its own trellis as well as my rain barrel. 

If you look carefully you can find little blue bottles, broken pottery shards, and cottage bird houses.

One of my favorite little places is my Buddha garden. My friend, Kathy, gave me this Buddha for my birthday one year. He holds court over a small garden. At night I usually light a candle illuminating the space. Actually I have candles in all the trees as well.

If you aren't busy one night, come on over for a cup of tea or glass of wine and we can sit in the garden by candlelight and chat about our day!

Until tomorrow.

Lou Ann, I would love to see a picture of your garden candles that you hang in the trees. I have some candle holders that are like mason jars....very hard to negotiate getting lit tea candles inside! I was thinking of using the 4"emergency candles that the hardware store sells instead. I love reading about your garden!

I will get you a photo! Last night I had all the candles lit waiting for the meteor shower. I had a yard full of folks and we waited until 4:30, but saw nothing. At least my yard was pretty!!
