The Secret Garden

"The Secret Garden was what Mary called it when she was thinking of it. She liked the name, and she liked still more the feeling that when its beautiful old walls shut her in no one knew where she was. It seemed almost like being shut out of the world in some fairy place."I am re-reading The Secret Garden, one of my favourite childhood stories. It reminded me of how fun it was to be a child; talking to the birds, kissing the flowers, running around barefoot, sharing a secret. Let's not forget the very idea of magic; it was with magic Mary came across the long buried key and hidden door and found the secret garden.

Why should we ever stop believing in a bit of magic?

Magical pictures from here.

Never stop believing. There is a child in everyone of us and we should stop to smell the roses along the way.

These are such beautiful photos. Are they from a Secrest Garden book or did you take them? Did you see the original film? It was in black and white and then when they entered the garden it was in colour which had to be handcoloured on all the reels of film. Can you imagine?! So gorgeous.
