THE SECRET GARDEN – ONE OF CARMEL’S HIDDEN COURTYARDS

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 ,

color

and texture.

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.

and

Unfreeze your fiery heart.”

    The succulents are gorgeous! I have to figure out how to get mine to look like that. 🙂

    I was just searching for this information for some time. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Usually the top sites are full of garbage.
