Secret Treasures

Yesterday I discovered a whole new world living in my dear Mother-in-law's backyard. It was alive and flourishing with bright verdure and popping blossoms. Tucked beneath these wonderful botanicals were hidden treasures. It took me back to times when I was little and use to imagine I was a tiny fairy living within the world of mimosa trees, moss, and honeysuckle. These prized possessions are tattered, weathered, nicked & dinged. Among them live tea cups, clocks, boys playing flutes, pots, chickens, and pinwheels. Having a garden is rewarding and beautiful but adding treasures nestled around these lush garden beds make it unique and welcoming to a new world.
