A Secret Garden…

A Peony for Fertilizer Friday…it’s not mine but I was given permission to photograph it!!!  Guess I’d better not be fertilizing someone else’s flowers…so I’ll just flaunt it…

 I’m also linking to Melissa at The Inspired Room…this garden has been my inspiration today!!!

It doesn’t seem to be so beautiful from across the street …but this little corner of the world is just a plethora of beauty…I often drive by this little back street just to see the garden. This time I asked around and found out who owned it and asked permission to photograph it…You just won’t believe what this little piece of heaven has!!!

image The lot this garden sets on is where an old “downtown” building was razed some years ago. All of our downtown buildings are quite old…pretty common for most small towns…

image The peonies and the iris in the above photos were beautiful the day I visited.

imageThis little arbor was just a hint of what was lurking behind the fence…

 imageThis climbing rose was growing up against the new steel wall that had been erected beside the old building wall…
