I wish my photographs depicted it better, but this Secret Garden really did have that feeling of being tucked away behind the screen of pines and filled with an array of flowers with the perfect rope swing hanging from the “old tree”. The Secret Garden was one of my favorite books as a child, and I read it over and over. The way it captured my imagination might have lead me along the primrose path of gardening to some degree.
Warwicks did a very fine job on their display, and it was a good use of the type of garden design that would work well in our area, especially if you planned a spring season garden that is mainly green and shady in the summer. It illustrated how effective a statue can be in the right place. Too often such garden ornaments are plunked down in someone’s front yard, awkward and out of place. This one made sense secluded and featured near the classic water feature. I liked it.
I’m experimenting putting pics together in a collage- haven’t quite struck on the style yet.
