The Secret Gardens...

Come with me and relax awhile...  Lets take a journey through a small village I know...

We'll see gardens and flowers and cats...  Oh my!

Stepping quietly through the first gate... 







  Into a green and pleasant land...







...  Full of tulips...












Through the arch...  Into the first secret garden...







Full of calm and restfulness...







Some friends to help us find our way...















"Onwards, onwards, you're going the right way!"  Purrs the cat.






"In here, in here!"  Whispers his friend...







We come to a land of purple...














And wooden logs for warm fires...






"This way, over here!"  Miaows a shy cat...







And behind the wall we find a quiet place for resting...











We sit under an open window and listen to the gardener play beautiful music on her piano...






Then we're off again...







To a magical place of flags and bath tubs!











And there, behind the ivy, hidden in the wall...







And up the stairway...








Is a place to curl up and be still...







To meditate...







And to eat breakfast...







'Til, finally, on our gentle journey, we reach the faraway castle...







And stepping through it's gates we find the most secret garden of all...







Filled with rocks, and trees...















And a riot of red...















I hope you've had a wonderful journey and that the flowers are blooming in your garden.

  9. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous gardens Emma, I'm without one of my own in our little old maisonette so I love to live vicariously through others' gardens!

    Those hidden stairs have set my imagination whirring!
