It is when I look at pictures taken a year ago that I truly realize how much the secret garden has grown. This picture was taken exactly a year ago.
Last year I filled in many of the empty spaces with purple petunias. Many of purple varieties have that lovely vanilla scent and are especially fragrant in the evenings. This year, though, the perennials became more established and took up more room. And, of course, I added the Casey Bell sculpture after the picture above was taken. Below is a picture of the same garden that was taken this morning.
