Summer Style 3//Secret Garden

“If you look the right way, you can see that the 

whole world is a garden.” 

― Frances Hodgson BurnettThe Secret Garden

“It made her think that it was curious how much nicer a person looked when he smiled. She had not thought of it before.” 

― Frances Hodgson BurnettThe Secret Garden

“There's naught as nice as th' smell o' good clean earth, except th' smell o' fresh growin' things when th' rain falls on 'em.” 

― Frances Hodgson BurnettThe Secret Garden

“As she came closer to him she noticed that there was a clean fresh scent of heather and grass and leaves about him, almost as if he were made of them. She liked it very much and when she looked into his funny face with the red cheeks and round blue eyes she forgot that she had felt shy.” 

― Frances Hodgson BurnettThe Secret Garden

Dear People,
If there is ever something I should not wish to hide from you, it is these two things:
1. My never fading fondness for children's literature,
2. My never fading fondness for flowers.

Never forget mind you!

There is something enchanting about flowers.
My escapades in flower photography started young, but I particularly recall the summer of my 16th year.
It was very fortunate indeed the neighbors did not call the authorities on me for "trespassing". For I was very persistent and sly in getting all the best "shots".
Now a-days I still love taking photos, but the camera quality is better and my social boundaries are more developed.
Now I just hit the back of our church where we have those lovely flowers (pictured above) that set-off the mountain backdrop beautifully. And no one knows but Pastor...

This outfit was made special by my first LIVE flower wreathe. My grandparents were throwing some bouquets away and I managed to save  the good clippings. I am sure my grandfather just wanted to get the trash out, but I could not throw good blooms away. 
The result was that after I came home, I bobby-pinned them into formation.
Easy peasy, and beautiful!

I guess you could say it was all second hand, even the flowers!

I hope this may have brightened you day a bit.

And do not fear,

I have many more flower pictures to share later on!

God Bless You and Keep You,
May He make His face to Smile Upon You!

~Yours ever blooming~
