The secret Garden- Le jardin secret.



Dreaming of spring and a secret garden...When and where everything comes alive.

"Where you tend a rose, my lad,
A thistle cannot grow."

The secret Garden By Frances Hodgson Burnett, illustrated by Inga Moore is a must read For early spring.
This book enchanted me, made me smile and warm my heart. 
It made me appreciate the nature surrounding me. The simple things we take for granted.
The illustration is beautiful also.


The garden is slowly coming alive in Utah. The colors are still faded.

Nice to see how a book can inspire you. I haven't read The Secret Garden but I think I should.

The Secret Garden is one of my favorite childhood reads. I read it to my boys when they were little and they really liked it too.
