I Want To Find My Own Secret Garden

    15 Years Ago ...

    Fifteen years ago I lived in Brussels, Belgium.  I rented a little house which was built in the 1950s, a detached wooden chalet style single level place surrounded by a large garden. It was on the site of what used to be a racecourse and my house was the stable boy's...

    Beauty

    There are two ways see my garden Daytime, My garden in the daytime is very similar to a Thomas Kincade picture which is surrounded with beauty and splendor in ever corner. The weather is in the 70's not too hot, but also not too cold and the flowers are bright and colorful. As...

    A Place

    A place where I can go to day dream and get inspirations. Where I can go to just relax and think. Listen to the birds sing their joy fill songs A place where I feel happy and at peace A place where there are the most beautiful flowers like orchids, the most vivid colors which can...

    My Secret Garden

    Is a place where flowers and plants grow in abundance, where I can sit conetentedly, purring away, no matter what I'm doing, and be at peace, as I walk along a path overgrown with small green grasses and little flowers here and there in between the cobbled stones, high green...

    A Secret Garden

        Sometimes I wish I could break through the cloudy haze that so often surrounds me. The shadows, covering my life.  I want to breathe, I want to run, I want to run away.   Away from myself, away from it all.   But I'd always bring you with me.   I wish we had a secret...

    Lush And Tropical

    My secret garden is lush and tropical, with lots of misty rain, blooming flowers with bright colorful petals, green benches along the way, umbrellas to sit under when it rains....a cobblestone walkway that leads to a thicket of trees and palms under which I can spread my blanket...

    My Secret Garden

    "My secret garden's not so secret anymore..."  Now that I told you! xD  Lol I love Depeche Mode.  That's the first thought I had, when I saw this group!  Hm.  I guess having a secret garden would be pretty awesome! So yeah, count...

    Hidden

    My secret garden is far from people and their noise and drama; the only gossips welcome there are the birds and squirrels.  Running water talks to itself somewhere under the old oaks and maples, a gentle countertheme to the soft silence.

    Drifting Through The Thoughts In My Head.....

    At times, I felt like I have to recharge, just disconnect from everyone and everything and drift through the thoughts in my head. My head constantly spinning feelings of dread and songs of hate throughout me and it is difficult to sort it all out when you can only focus so...

    Hells Yeah

    I've always wanted something like this. So far, the closest I've gotten to the sort of secret garden that I would like is my dreams. Things are crazy in there, but also mysterious and beautiful. It's like a vaguely familiar maze in my dreams. And the best thing is, there are...

    My Secret Garden..

     I imagine my own secret garden to be like these pics.. Climbing roses rambling on a split rail fence and up over the eaves of the house. Stone paths leading through the garden. Benches here and there where you stop and take in the beauty. Lots of fragrant flowers...

    I Think I Will

    As long as someone else would do the gardening and other technical stuff. Flowers automatically commit suicide if I touch them. Hopefully 'my own secret gardener' belongs to the deal. I haven't read the book (referring to Francess Burnett's Secret Garden) for a while, but if I...

    Sanctuary

    I love to find a secret garden, secluded and quiet where i could collect my thoughts and relax. Lots of tall trees, bright scented flowers, green bushes and a glass summer house.
