The Secret Garden.


Earlier in the week I went home for a few days. I'm fortunate to live in an absolutely beautiful place in the Countryside, it's so peaceful and picturesque. I actually think I forget how much I love it when I'm away at University, so when I come home I'm in my element! While I was home we were treated to some fabulous weather so what better time than that to take some photos. My garden is quite grand so I appologise in advance for the picture-heavy post!

My favourite book when I was a child was The Secret Garden, written by Frances Hodgson Burnett, and my garden always reminds me of how I used to imagine the place in the story, when I was a child. That's the inspiration behind the photos; hence the post title.. (Also, look out for the lovely little hedgehog that was relaxing in our garden!)

  1. I love the Secret Garden, we have a bit at the end of our garden hidden by a line of trees so when I was little my Mum planted roses in there and bought be a little outdoor chair and table set, it's still my favourite place in the world. I also have scrabble tile art and lanterns hung in there :)
