DON'T MISS THIS BLOG

A few days ago, while surfing for unusual blogs, I came across one that I think you will not want to miss. It's The Secret Garden and presents the most unique and enchanting garden photos!

The Secret Garden is a place of fairies and gnomes, forest dwellers, and countless other magical and mystical wonders. It takes the reader on a grand tour of one or two magnificent gardens each month. I was swept away in complete awe while visiting there.

If you wish to spend a few minutes in pure fantasy and serenity, you will certainly want to visit The Secret Garden. Please be sure, also, to turn up the volume on your computer, so you can enjoy the outdoor sounds of the gardens.


Note: Click on each month's featured garden (under the months in Archive, near bottom of her page) while you're there. Each one is unique and fascinating.


Get ready for an EXPERIENCE!!!!! DON'T MISS IT!!!!

***It inspires me to enclose my property and get to work!

***How did it makes you feel? Inspired, relaxed, uneasy, or something else?

Wow, that was just amazing! How beautiful and inspiring! I'd love to have a garden even half as beautiful as the one featured on the blog right now!

Wow, amazing garden sculptures going on there. I'd imagine that visiting the actual garden, you could spend several peaceful hours there, soaking it all in.

I will go see them while I am taking a short break from writing - of course, my "break" comes from carpenters here banging away, laughing, talking - argh! laughing....

Barbara said...

Carol- I could spend the entire afternoon on her blog.

Barbara said...

Barbara said...

"Inpired" that's how it made me feel...If it EVER stops raining in my area...It inspires me to get out in my yard and try and to "Something" with it.

Barbara said...

CCDaydreams- Yes, what talent!

Barbara said...

Lesley- I'm so glad you and your daughter enjoyed it.

Barbara said...

JD- It's raining here, too. Can't wait to get out and start making they garden pretty.

It was the most beautiful garden. Are you and your commenters aware that this garden was destroyed in the Victorian bushfires this year. The whole town of Marysville was destroyed and many many people died. Luckily the Artist and family were uninjured but his statues were not so lucky, some of the clay ones survived. He is in the process of rebuilding the garden and repairing the statues.

diane- I was not aware of that and it makes me very sad to hear such a thing. What a tragedy!
