The Secret Garden Revisited

Hey everyone.  It's me, Mitch!
Mom and I were on our own for walkies last Sunday because dad had an early appointment. 

Look what we discovered at the house right before we get to our secret garden!
The word is that the hoomans who live here got married on Saturday.
Can you see those flower pots just beyond the tent?

 They were inside the secret garden!  Are you thinkin' what I'm  thinkin'?
Was the wedding ceremony inside our secret garden?
All of that greenery on the foundation walls is wild roses.  They are the most awesome smelling roses in all of creation but they have the most wicked thorns! 

Sorry that the picture is a bit blurry.  There are an awful lot of interesting smells in here!
 This was on the picnic table.  I think it must be one of those wind chiming thingies!
 These pots of flowers got left behind.  They didn't make it to the tent reception.

I'm keeping my eye on our secret garden to see what else is happening here this summer and I'll be sure and let you all know!
 Continuing on our walkie towards home, we saw a beautiful Kousa Dogwood!  It's loaded with flowers!
 We couldn't pass by this Lily and not think of Miss Autumn. She sure does love orange!
 I always get my walkie first because Maggie is slower now and she likes to poke and sniff and take her sweet time. 

Thanks for coming along on our walkies with us!

So until next time..............

Yer friends,
Mitch and Maggie

Hi Mitch, that's a very nice walk through the secret garden. My sister is a little slow on walkies too. I think that she either gets bored or she gets tired. Anyways I hope all is well on your end.

How romantic to get married in a secret garden lined with sweet-smelling roses! Sounds like a fairy tale:) That tree is just gorgeous. We didn't know that dogwoods bloomed this late in the season. Thanks for taking us on your lovely walk.

Have a great weekend.
