Walking, a secret garden

A secret garden close to the house, but not directly attached beside the orchard but behind the vegetable garden. I believe that a house is just a house until absorbed into a garden, only then can you call it a home.

Below is my purposeful walk through the secret garden of Thirning Villa, it has 4 distinct walks like a labyrinth each crosses the paths of the other. I walked this walk a number of times today to take in the new plantings and the dance the paths. In the first drawing you will see I have captured¬† each path separately and each drawing that follows I have captured the essence of the rhythm of the paths that create a sense of wonderment in any garden. This is the place I wish to be when the days seems insurmountable with worry and money problems in a garden tending the plants, nurturing and growing them as I did my own children………I am with my own thoughts today.
