Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

Today I made the most wonderful discovery; there is a secret garden behind my house! I have often admired the tops of the plants from my window, but it is only since the flowers have bloomed that I have realized what it is. I have always been fascinated with the notion of a secret garden, since reading the book (of the same name) when I was eleven. I loved frolicking in the flowers, and wore a vintage floral dress so I blended right in. Naturally, I finished the look with a bowler hat and my favourite lipstick – which actually took me a whopping fourty-five minutes to locate!

  2. How wonderful! I read the book just recently, I adore it so much (and of course the garden in the movie is everything I imagined it to be)

    Lovely dress, and the search for the lipstick was well worth it, really looks beautiful on you

  5. I adore that movie!!! I have both the book and the English play of it. I use to have the movie and can not find it for the life of me. It is definitely on my Christmas wish list.
