An Open Secret

From: Project Gutenberg

"It is a sun-baked afternoon deep in the Kentish countryside which once left Frances Hodgson Burnett feeling 'flower drunk.' Hollyhocks skirt the old brick walls, lavender nods beneath the weight of drowsy bees and the ivy-wreathed archway of my childhood fantasies is just one step ahead of me. It’s a step that children have dreamed of taking for 100 years. A step into a world of friendship, mysteries and magic. A step into The Secret Garden.
[...] The gardens at Great Maytham Hall [are] open to the public once a year as part of the National Gardens Scheme. See www.ngs.org.uk for more details."
— Helen Brown, The Telegraph
