New Year’s Resolutions 1: Creating my own (Secret) Garden

After receiving some garden vouchers for Christmas from my in-laws, we have been spurred us on to think about what we might like to do with our garden. So here is my first new year’s resolution for 2012: creating my own (Secret) Garden.

So with mobile phone camera to hand, we made a trip to our local garden centre for some inspiration:

A Sundial

I don’t actually remember there being a sundial being mentioned in The Secret Garden (ebook), but they do feel quintessentially part of an English country garden.
