After Melody saw The Secret Garden, she wanted to have something like that. I started working on our own little peaceful space. I was able to get some old bricks from a friend and created the patio and pathway. There are still only a few plants in our secret garden but it gets a little better each year. We have jasmine one end and honey suckles on the other so it always smells good in springtime.
Here is a closer shot of the patio, my moment of proud masonry.
