The Secret Garden…..

When I was a young child, my Father would read from ‘The Secret Garden’ to me almost every day, to the point that I was able to say the words with him as he read…..

Needless to say it was, and still, is one of my favourite books.


“Is the Spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”


“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine………”

Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden.

    It is no wonder, with this gentle and beautiful introduction as a child, that your paintings so exquisitely embrace the delights of the garden. Lovely post, Janet. 😀

    As gorgeous as your hummingbirds are, I almost hate to comment on anything else… It seems almost silly to do so. But i do love green, and you used a particularly lovely shade of green in these. Hugs! :mrgreen:
