The secret garden

21/08/2013

Sometimes when you are travelling, you are lucky to turn a corner and walk into a tiny little piece of heaven, that you had no idea existed. We turned such a corner, and walked into a secret little garden in the church courtyard. The girls were delighted by the beautiful blooms, and I just loved the colours, the exotic flowers and the tiny little perfectly formed purple tree (anyone know what tree it is?) Just wonderful to explore. Maybe that's what we should do - be Globetrotters - sounds pretty good to me!

  1. Love the third photo, there's something very cute, funny and sweet about it. It looks like a wonderful place and one to spend hours just relaxing and being surrounded by flowers. Great pics xo

    1. HA ha yes it is very funny - Holly was very dramatic about it - taking in the sweet scent of the flowers. Drama-queen that one, wonder where she gets it from ;-)

    1. Thanks for your sweet words Jocelyn, the pink sunnies are Holly's own purchase from the market - she looked rather dashing ;-)

  4. You found this at the church??? It's gorgeous. It looks like it may be the blue Rose of Sharon bush...a type of tiny flowered hibiscus. The yellow flower in the pot is another type of hibiscus.

    And can I just point out the obvious? Your girls are truly adorable....!! x

  6. The bush seems Thunbergia, could also be a very thriving Rose of Sharon (which would fit the place)...
    The pictures ARE Heavenly; that's how Angels behave - beautiful, a bit untamed, with lots of GRACE - up there ;)
    Love,
    Teresa
