The Secret Garden

After waking up to find eight inches of snow on the ground this morning, I thought it would be a good day to visit Macy’s Flower Show in downtown Minneapolis.  The fragrant flowers welcomed us the moment we exited the elevator.

The theme this year is The Secret Garden.  I am not familiar with this story, but after wandering around the auditorium for a while and noticing little secrets amongst the flowers, I realized the story must be true to its name and have many secrets hidden within its pages.  See if you can notice some things hiding in the pictures below.

Did you find the sleeping man and the tortoise topiary?

After seeing all these beautiful sights, I can only imagine what the story is all about.  It looks like I will have to add The Secret Garden to my reading list.

Happy Spring!

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change. ~ Buddha

“I will be the gladdest thing under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one.”

  1. Oh, Mary Ann, you would love the story. Either the book or a wonderfully made movie version (Warner Brothers, 1993) is well worth your time (says the woman who has read it three times and seen the movie at least twice!).
