Secret Garden RS

From The Secret Garden (the Musical)

Come to my garden,
Nestled in the hills.
There I’ll keep you safe beside me.

Come to my garden.
Rest there in my arms.
There I’ll see you
Safely grown and on your way.

Stay there in the garden,
Where love grows free and wild.
Come to my garden.
Come, sweet child

    Pure heaven!!!!
    My O W is posted now…it’s a continuation [and last entry for the week] of our tour of the Botanical Gardens.

  2. Hi Claudia,

    As always, your photos are amazing! I think I should like visiting the secret garden and having a cup of tea for the morning–it is so lovely! The curved door is perfect for the setting, and the flowers gorgeous.

    Thanks for sharing your gifts and talents!

    Have a lovely day~

    Oh, I loved the gorgeous pictures on your blog. What wonderful photography!! Also, thanks for stopping by my blog. Please visit again.

  29. Alyshia says:

    The photos are stunning. You are so talented.

  30. Karen Cox says:

    Oh Claudia,
    This is gorgeous.  I love how you have created enchantment with these photographs.  The Secret Garden play, how lovely that you mentioned this today.  I went to see the play in NYC with my husband just before we moved our family to Hong Kong.  The Secret Garden is my favorite childhood book and I found a gorgeous new edition last year.  Which is the biography of the author, the story and illustrators throughout the years.
    Beautiful post.  It reminds me even more that we truly are kindred spirits.


  31. Candy says:

    How enchanting was the stroll through your secret garden this morning. Thanks for leaving the gate open and inviting me in 😉

  32. sarah says:

  33. Olive Rue says:

    Hi Claudia,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the sweet comment. I love your blog banner and these gorgeous photos. Now, I’m off to look around some more.

  34. Oooh! Such beautiful flower gardens! Enchanting!

  35. Amisha says:

    That first picture is so magical, it looks the setting of a fairy tale, before the curtains go up and the characters start flitting around.

    And ooh, I do love your sunflowers!

  36. Michelle says:

    Just found your blog today. I love it! Great photos!!

  37. Scratch and dent shows that they were touched but not takent.  Many things in life are discarded because they are not perfect in the eyes of some.  Maybe those gently marred items need to be given a second  chance to be loved.

    Your words are beautiful.  Thank you also for the lovely comment you left for me.


  38. Your photos are incredible. This is my first visit but I’ll be back for more.

  39. Leann says:

    Hi Claudia

    If you have the time, please stop by The Old Parsonage, I love company!
