Magical Places.......

Do you like to follow stepping stones..............
that take you to unknown places............

somewhere that holds just a little bit of mystery........


where nature has no regular preening........and is allowed to do her own thing.................



Do you like to see places where small creatures can hide........undisturbed by humans...........




where you can indulge your childhood fantasies.................
and get lost in the moment...........
Do you like to sit beneath the trees...............


and listen to small creatures scurrying around............and birds singing..............somewhere that your troubles and worries just drift away................welcome to the copse..........my secret garden........

Oh yes yes. I want to be on that path to your secret garden. To rest there and absorb the serene.

Cheryl said...

And Lisa you would be one person that would be welcome because you would understand it......

Cheryl, before I ever got to the last line, I was thinking how I've always wanted a secret garden. I would love to explore this path!

I have so much open space here that any secret garden I might plan would be very small and not so "secret" for several years. I am always amazed at all you have accomplished here, Cheryl.

Wendy said...

Me too! I would love to gently step over the stones, follow the sounds of birdsong and perhaps a waterfall, if not a real waterfall, then an imaginary one....until I come to your secret garden. I would enjoy the sweet caress of your plantlife and talk to the magical creatures that live there. On my way out, I would leave an offering for the faeries to thank them for tending your sacred space.
And thank you for sharing...

Oh, yes indeed! I would LOVE to follow that path. Thanks for giving us a virtual tour.

Mary said...

yes, yes, yes, yes, YES.

I'd love a day in your secret garden :o)

Oh yes! I would love to go walking and explore your secret garden. I promise not to tell anyone!

Cheryl said...

Hello Rose......me to, it is something I have always dreamed of....the area as you know is fenced and has a gate with padlock....I take Riley and Poppi there sometimes....they know to be quiet and it is a treat for them.....

Cheryl said...

No waterfall Wendy but it does border my neighbours pond......which is surrounded by beautiful willows......so it all adds to the serenity of this space......

marmee said...

i love the little secrets that our gardens hold...l would love to be on your pathways peeking at all your hidden treasures.

Yolanda Elizabet said...

With all these people in the know it wouldn't be a secret garden anymore, would it? And you could forget about the serene too with all those herds of garden bloggers trampling in the bushes. :-)

But .......... as soon as everybody is gone I'll come. And it will be an adventure, and exciting, and fun.

Cheryl said...

Dear Marmee.....I love secret gardens....where others do not go.......it is a special place that gets better as the years roll on.......

Cheryl said...

Hi Yolanda....you are absolutely right....no more posts on the copse....this could get out of control..........

SweetAnnee said...

What special place Cheryl. I can feel the peace and tranquility through those pictures. It is the sort of place I would like to have just to go and be alone with my thoughts, to be at one with nature and absorb her energy. You are so lucky to have that place so thak you for sharing that with us. Have a wonderful weekend and love to all xxxxx

Patsi said...

With a little bit of help and letting nature take over you've created wonderful gardens.
Very nice Cheryl.

A magical post! I always loved Enid Blyton stories and of course The Secret Garden. Great for the imagination. Thanks for sharing.
