My secret garden

This picture, taken by Kevin D. Cordeiro, reminds me of the phrase, my secret garden, the loosely tied rope around the tiny gates that promises green pastures beyond.

My secret garden as a phrase that has about 1.5 million hits on google if you search for it. The most popular is a metaphorical use of the phrase in a book by Nancy Friday. Her books are recommended reads. And a favourite of mine is My Secret Garden, a restaurant by that name just beside Plaza by the Park in Singapore.

In Sweden, the little would gate open to a whole experience of summer dining in the garden, children playing on swings outdoors and the smell of lilacs all around from the numerous lilac trees that grow almost wildly in Sweden, in varying shades of purple and white, in the spring time.
