One of my favorite books has always been , The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett.
I have been a gardener since I was 20 years old. I learned from my Mom and Grandparents to love gardening. It has helped me through many hard times. I am going to look for some amaryllis bulbs this week for the kitchen window. And some paper white bulbs to start in October.
I am going to start Pansy seeds in October too. I have already started plans for the garden next summer. I have always wanted a secret garden, and I am planning one. I have been collecting seeds this summer for next year and I keep them in the fridge.
There is some wrought iron fence at a junkyard down the road that i would like to purchase for the front yard. I have a huge skeleton key that reminds me of the key to open the door to the secret garden. I could incorporate that in the fence. I would like to have a privacy fence that would surround the backyard, and plant ivy to cover the fences. I think it will happen. *nita*
