The Way to the Secret Garden

Walk through the gate in the wall

into the Topiary Garden.

Follow the soft grass paths to the summer house.

The little bridge will take you over the moat

to a rose garden, heavy with scent

and then down narrow corridors of yew

to the Secret Garden.

Take your time,

there is so much to say.


MissM was surprised and touched
by all the kind comments yesterday.

She thanks you all.

I (almost) felt as though I was there with you all - quietly listening to Miss M's talk of her adventure!

Oh Thankyou. I loved it, especially the gate in the wall. Where was I ?

Oh, magical in every way! I think that little summer house would make a perfect Room of One's Own...

It looks like a magical place to catch up on summer stories. Perfect!

I like that I do not see people wearing overcoats too. That weather needs to persist for another four weeks.

What a beautiful setting for catching up.

What a beautiful post. It makes me want to get on a plane and come over. It is so lovely there!

Is that Levens Hall? I know there is spectacular chesspiece-style topiary there (as it's near my mum and dad). I love that gate in the wall - so inviting - and it was certainly worth passing through to the other side!

Please tell us where it is! I don't think it can be Levens Hall..its near me and it would be raining.
