I recommend the book “The Secret Garden” it's an very interesting book.
The book the secret garden is about a girl named Mary who comes from India to live with her uncle. She finds the key to her uncle's “Secret Garden” that hasn‘t been entered in ten years. The secret garden is a garden in which her uncle used to go with his wife. After his wife died he locked the garden so that he wouldn‘t be reminded of his wife that had passed away.

And by his side, with his head up in the air and his eyes full of laughter, walked as strongly and steadily as any boy in Yorkshire- Master Colin!

I will forever be in love with this story. This and Heidi and Pollyanna hold such special places in my heart and I love it.
I loved seeing Mary and Colin grow and change. Become healthy and develop friendships with Ben and Dickon. I loved the robins pov and I loved the health and vitality. I loved that the Magic is God and I love that confession and outlook are explored in such an innocent and adorable way. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I read this when I was very young and remembered loving it. It was so long ago , I figured I should reread it.
I still love it! What a wonderful story. Such a classic. It was originally published in 1910.

I think I may be the only one who‘s never read or seen the movie adaptation of The Secret Garden, but I can no longer say that now. This book is certainly dated (published in 1911), and somewhat predictable, but it also portrays beautifully the magic that can be seen through a child‘s eyes.

cherinium You're definitely not the only one. I have never had any interest in reading the book or seeing the film.🤷🏼‍♀️ 3mo
Avanders I also haven‘t read it (or seen it), but I do want to! I‘m trailing you ... 😁 3mo

My meditation this morning took me to a Secret Garden! I never used to be a guided meditation fan, but I've been finding them really helpful in getting myself to actually sit down and practice every day lately. Photo shamelessly stolen from google. After my meditation I spent 20min looking at pics of actual secret gardens and various editions of the book- which are beautiful and I want all of them!

As I had to stay much longer at work today I‘ve decided not to get back to writing my Thesis tonight but to spend the time reading and relaxing😍

So far I‘m liking the book but am feeling sorry for Mary - as if it is her fault that she is unkind and unpleasant. That‘s just what an unloved and neglected child turns out as.... can someone just give her a hug?

wanderinglynn That‘s one of my favorite stories. And there are a few good adaptations. 👍🏻 4mo

My parents have another illustrated copy of it, and I already noticed the big big differences in the translation... it is interesting to actually see how much freedom a translator actually has!

(Day 2 - #ImaginaryPlaces)

*While the garden is real, parts of Burnett‘s story involve the imaginations of some of the characters, e.g., Colin must use his imagination to conceive of the garden as Mary describes it; Mary may or may not use her imagination in following the directions of the almost anthropomorphic robin redbreast; Mr. Craven‘s imagination might be fashioning the sprits who visit him, and the ensuing dream he has. ♥️

I watched the secret garden 1000 times growing up but had never read the book. I loved reading it and getting to experience it as an adult! I definitely had a better understanding of all the characters and how hard every situation would have been. Now I can't wait to re-watch the movie since it has probably been over 10 years! ❤

ClairesReads Oh I was 100 obsessed wth both! Hope you enjoy rewatching the film 6mo

If he had ever had any one to talk to about his secret terrors—if he had ever dared to let himself ask questions—if he had had childish companions and had not lain on his back in the huge closed house, breathing an #atmosphere heavy with the fears of people who were most of them ignorant and tired of him, he would have found out that most of his fright and illness was created by himself. #QuotsyApr19
