The Key to the Garden ...

Have you ever read The Secret Garden? I have fond memories of my Mother reading that book to my sisters and I when we were younger. We would imagine the garden and what it looked like and enjoyed knowing that it was secret and only a special few knew of it's existence. We wanted a key to our very own secret garden ...

I don't have a secret garden, but I do have about 15 pots (random sizes and shapes) around my home and every year in early May, I fill them with various plants and flowers. Today was my 'garden day' and it was absolutely wonderful! :)
I am so thankful for days like today and for the beautiful world we live in!!! I feel like saying something a bit corny now (or cheesy) ... You ready? OK it's this ... The key to having a 'beautiful garden' - lies within...
Happy Thursday night! I'm off to dream of keys, flowers, robins, tantrums, and a cry in the night ....

How un-cultured am I that I've never read this book. I have however seen the movie about a thousand times. My little girl loves the movie, I should get the book and start reading it to her. Thanks for the advice.

Gardening...hmmm...I have what I call a killer thumb. It's so not even close to green, it kills anything thing with chlorophyl in it.
