When we nurture a garden, it gives us so much back….and this was the case with my little Secret Garden in The Magical Town of Crickadoon.
I would sit for hours on this little bench, where all my sense were fed. There was the natural perfume of nature, the beautiful sounds of bird song, and the visual delights of butterflies and bees as they enjoyed all the foods the garden had to offer.
When the rose petals fell to the ground like confetti, I would put them in a bowl with a little water…
Sitting enveloped by lavender bushes, I was able to experience the healing and calmness that this beautiful shrub gives.
Another quote from Francis Hodgson Burnett’s – The Secret Garden
‘And the Secret Garden bloomed and bloomed and every morning revealed new miracles’
I had french doors that opened up onto the garden allowing all the smells and sounds of the garden to come indoors….everything was connected.
