Who can resist entering a secret garden? Certainly not “moi”. But I hardly expected to see one boldly announcing its name.
Can it still be a secret? Nevertheless, I love the Secret Garden walkway and courtyard next to The Pilgrim’s Way Bookstore. They are both owned and operated by Paul Fridlund and Cynthia Fernandes. They have created a lovely spot in the Secret Garden. I walk down the passageway admiring the pots already planted by a local designer.
She uses succulents and has a great eye for balance ,
Ahead, I hear wind chimes and gurgling fountains.
I read many great messages along the way
and admire the garden statuary.
The center of the courtyard is a geodesic dome which shelters books, cards, music and jewelry.
When you are in Carmel next, drop in and
“Unstiffen your supple body.
Unchatter your quiet mind.
Unfreeze your fiery heart.”
