  3. By coincidence, I’m presently about half-way through ‘The Secret Garden’. It’s not yet spring in the story, but Mary is imagining it will look like the gardens in your photos! Your brick archway in particular is inviting. Amazing blog you’ve created.

  5. All are lovely pictures, but you may call me crazy, but my favorite is the one of the deadheads. I guess it has something to do with roses in a big container – there is something very appealing about them (even when they are headed to the compost).
