Inside the Hut
Katelyn and Benjamin
Making Friends in the Garden
"It is my garden now. I am fond of it. I shall come here every day," announced Colin. Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden.
Okay so maybe we wont go every day but that's how I felt as I walked along the quaint paths. Gamble Gardens is a little bit of heaven! I can just imagine discussing Books like The Secret Garden, Pride and Prejudice, or Thumbelina here. You can have brunches or they have a long picnic table under the big tree where you can pack a lunch. Holly Allison sent us for a picnic with all of Katelyn and Sarah's little friends here. The kids played in the little hut and ate the yummy cookie sticks that Holly made (leftover Halloween candy bars on a popcicle stick wrapped in cookie dough, then baked). I wish you could all come for a picnic with us! For now just enjoy the scenery.
