The #Secret Garden is one of my all time favorite books. I still own only the copy that my au pair read to me when I was little, but it‘s one I‘m constantly tempted to buy duplicates of. #JanuaryJazz @Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Perfect 🤩 5d
lynneamch Have you ever watched the 2017 steam punk version? I watched it on Amazon Prine. It's amusing. 5d
IndoorDame @lynneamch not yet, but it‘s in my queue. Should I watch it? 5d

lynneamch I got a big kick out of it, though purists may not agree. I'd be curious to know what you think. 5d
IndoorDame @lynneamch okay, cool. I‘ll check it out. I do love the original, but I‘m usually open to adaptations, and steampunk interests me 5d
Eggs Beautiful 🤩 4d
dabbe One of my faves, too! I loved the 1993 film as well. 🪷 4d

#KindleInMotion: I thought I would try this new-ish format before the end of the year. I‘m impressed. 5-stars for this childhood favorite.

THE SECRET GARDEN was initially published as a serial story in 1910 and was brought out in novel form in 1911. The plot centers round Mary Lennox, a young English girl who returns to England from India, having suffered the immense trauma by losing both her parents in a cholera epidemic.

slategreyskies My great great aunt gave me a beautiful hardbound illustrated version of this book when I was a little girl. It‘s one of the few books, possibly the only one, that I still have from back then. I love that it has her handwriting inside the cover. It always makes me remember her and smile. 1mo
suvata @slategreyskies That is such a special memory. Thanks for sharing that. It was quite touching. 💖 1mo

@Andrew65 tells me that today is the National Day of Joy and a book that has always brought me joy, as well as introducing me to the love of a garden, is The Secret Garden! I knew Mary Lenox as well as a person could; we were so similar as I was growing up. I still read this every year or so!

I‘m cheating just a little bit because I‘m picking this house not for the house itself, but for its grounds.

Misselthwaite Manor and The Garden. What would you pick?

Clare-Dragonfly Ooh, good choice, but I‘m going to cheat even more 😂 4mo
TalesandTexts I would definitely love to live in the Pandava‘s palace (in the Mahabharata - the Hindu epic), which was constructed using optical illusion, exotic materials and (some say) magic; so that it looked like a brand new place everyday. Imagine waking up in a home that feels like a new house, which challenges you to keep up with its creativity and enchantment. 😁 4mo

Well, it‘s finally happened. My first positive COVID test.

1. Friar Hugo from Redwall Abbey. I need someone to cook for me, because I don‘t have any energy. 😅
2. Misselthwaite Manor. Mostly so I can hide in that garden.
3. Time outside doing nothing. Could be ten minutes, or two hours. No gardening, no multi tasking. Do nothing.

#SundayFunday Stay safe today and don‘t forget to tag me! 💖

1. Mainly my Mom has the garden, but I did have select flowers of my own.

2. Irises are my favorite, so there‘s some of those.

3. I don‘t really read books about gardens, so I‘ll have to go with The Secret Garden.

1. I don't have a garden but I have a balcony that every year I put flowers. Also my house have plants all around. No garden when you live in a building 😩

2. I have 6 orchids. Some of them more than 5 years old! I have in my balcony something that is a small strawberry and soon I will have the first ones of the year!
3. I am not into reading about flowers or gardens. I think I have never read about the topic

1 and 2. As a kid, our family had a vegetable and flower garden. Now we mainly have random collection of flowers that have lasted through the years, such as phlox, daffodils, crocus, and Lily of the Valley. Unfortunately, the bleeding hearts didn't survive.

“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.” Oh my heart! I have loved this book my whole life and especially love revisiting it in the spring.

In the background is my little bird friend, who makes her nest in my hanging planter every year. This is her 4th spring with me.
