The Secret Garden is one of my all time favorite stories. I am definitely a romantic and gardens hail romance, fascination, splendor (I could go one) since the beginning in the Garden of Eden. For gardeners and beholders alike, it holds great repose. Every sense seems heightened in one. Monet built one of the most beautiful so that he might always have it to paint right to the end. His famous murals still arouse awe. Going to head out into mine now and consider my surroundings before going into my studio for yet another wonderful day of paint. To all of you passionate gardeners out there, thanks!
