I love the idea of a "secret garden." Gardens are awesome. Growing up my pap had two big gardens in his back yard. His were mainly for vegetables--but there was something so nice about running out to your backyard if you need a tomato. He would line the side with flowers and American flags during the Fourth of July. We have a little nook behind my house next to the creek with a shady tree and little bench. It's so relaxing to sit out there on a nice day with a good book--no cell phone, no computer. Remember the movie, "The Secret Garden?"
It was one of my favorites growing up!
