Secret Garden


"Two, Four, Six, Eight
Meet you at the garden Gate!"

I always love peeking into the secret gardens around our city. So I definitely enjoyed this book:
Lets go peek into a few gardens, shall we?
There is no shortage of gorgeous old fashioned iron work on the gates and fences.....some plain and simple and some fancy and intricate. A peek in may reveal bright flowers......
big gates.......
little doorways.......
skinny alleyways....
or splashing fountains.


"The gardens of Charleston were mysteries walled away in ivied jewel boxes emitting their special fragrances over high walls........." Pat Conroy







(below)One of my favorites....( I love the stone wall, the bricks and the wooden door hanging open to welcome visitors)








another of my favorites...
I love the stone walkway, the bright flower pots, the purple chair and that pot of vivid purple/white flowers!  Whatever they are, they are amazing!




I hope you enjoyed a peek into these gardens as much as I did!

  6. Oh my, I loved every single photo! Lots of inspiration for my back yard that I'm trying to make into a cool garden. I love the garden near the end of your post with bricks all over and a courtyard look to it.
    Have a wonderful weekend!
