My not-so-secret Garden
"Don't let us make it tidy," said Mary anxiously. "It wouldn't seem like a secret garden if it was tidy."
~The Secret Garden
You may remember my previous post about my miniature garden. Every few days, I add to this magical little world. While laying out the pebbles this afternoon, one hand in the dirt and one hand wrapped around Jonah, I remembered the enchanting book The Secret Garden. Have you ever read that book?
Although this garden is on the front porch and in plain sight of any porch passer-byers, I tend to think we share a few secrets. No one else really knows what new accessory will settle into a corner or when Mr. McGregor's boots will appear.
I believe this not-so-secret garden has become my not-so-normal therapy.
You've gotta try it.
