The Secret Garden
Summer brings out the best in New Zealand.
Sunshine, cherries, apricots, peaches, oh and roses. Lots of roses.
Not just any type of roses but the massive and irresistible ones.
Our family friend in Christchurch has the most beautiful home garden I've ever seen. It looks like a scene from one of my favourite movies, The Secret Garden. Mum and I slept overnight before flying back to Malaysia last November so I took a few snaps of her garden the morning before we left.
Which reminds me, someone once asked me how I want my dream house to look like and I immediately said, "All I know is I want a garden with lots and lots of roses and have lots and lots of fresh flowers inside the house!"
Yeah, I get excited about flowers. When I was 9 years old I wanted to be a florist. No surprises there.
I don't know what these are called but I think they're absolutely stunning.
SubhanAllah, I've never seen the colour violet look so magical.
And there's BonBon!
BonBon was initially 'Bonnie' because they thought he was a 'she' at first.
When they found out his true, uhm, nature they felt 'Bonnie' wasn't quite right.
So BonBon it became.
And I LOVE the The Secret Garden! We have an old rusty gate in our garden that leads do a small messy hidden corner with bushes etc - it's really nothing special at all, but as a child (and with a lot of imagination) I used to pretend it was The Secret Garden and go on adventures LOL.
aimie: I know right? Breathtaking!
Amina: It's called that? Really? I never knew lol. Makes sense yah lol
bosnishmuslima: Your mum's garden sounds wonderful!
poshnmodest: It's an inspiring movie isn't it? I love the little girl's character. She's smart and strong willed!
Norsiah: LOL yeah he's HUGE too btw, if you can't tell from the pic.
Smiley: "Oh wow!" Exactly what I said too!
Elisa: Looks like we can start a fan club for The Secret Garden here LOL. I like how girly we both are, Elisa =)
Fida: I'm really happy I posted these photos. It's actually very therapeutic for me to see them lol.
hijabi hippie hypo: I know! Wish it was my garden.
Awww, BonBon looks like our old cat SimSim.
Love the kitty! A similar thing happened to my bird because when we bought it we thought it was a boy and named him stormy but later on we found out she was female and now she's Stormita!
