The Secret Garden

By OlwenB    
In this tiny space I covered the concrete base with paving stones and added white gravel. With lots of pots and hanging baskets and no other access, or view except from my kitchen, and not seen by any other person, I turned it into a little secret garden. It only got full sun at midday and then screened by the walls would be in shade.

Olwen ,Welcome to EPZ,It's a great site to make friends and learn from others.
I can see that you have a Welsh name ,any connection with Wales.
This is a beautiful little garden,and I'm sure it's great to sit there with all those lovely flowers around you.Smile

Thank you so much for your welcome, Netta. My father was from Brynmawr, Brecknockshire, Wales although I was born in South Africa.
I had to move to another property so, sadly I no longer have my Secret Garden. But still treasure the memory of it and can call up the peace and calm of sitting out there on a summer evening.
