Secret Garden


Dickon: The animals tell me all their secrets.
Mary: [pointing to the Robin] He wouldn't tell you my secret, would he?
Dickon: About what, Miss Mary?
Mary: A garden. I've stolen a garden. But it may already be dead, I don't know.
Dickon: I'll know.
Mary: Promise you won't tell anyone?
Dickon: Promise.
Mary: No one?
Dickon: Not a soul

As a young doll, I devoured books while others were out playing. Don't get me wrong, I loved to play too, but my imagination was far more intriguing to me. The Secret Garden a novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett and is one of my all-time favorite books. I have never been the same since reading this jewel as a child and I dream often of finding my own secret garden...xoxo

I played Mary in this play when I was younger... But I've never read the book, strangely! These photos are positively gorgeous. There's nothing I'd love more than finding a secret garden right now!
