Playing “secret garden” with my best friend was one of my favorite games as a kid.  It seems like any book we read or movie we watched we’d end up playing out.  Good thing they didn’t have Gladiator then!  Anyway, we’d pick these hidden away little places and then try and put together a retreat.  The key was to never let our little sisters know where our garden was.  The funny thing is that they would play secret garden too, and it was equally as important to be hidden. With stealth in mind, we would pick out plants that would hopefully grow in our locations.  Honestly, I don’t remember if we ended up planting anything, or just planning.  Either way, it was a good game.

I’ve never lost my love for quiet gardens.  The nature, the art, the fragrance.  Lovely.  This year we were able to set aside a little budget so I could start a patio garden.  Just like when I was a kid, I have great ideas of what I want it to look like, I just lack the finances to make it happen.   Oh well, I have a great imagination.  And you got to start somewhere, right!  By the time I’m 80, it is going to look amazing.

Oh, and I love this!  We just got a new path leading to our front door!  The scotch moss is to fill in the cracks between the slate.
