I'm no gardener, but it might be time to get out there again soon. We have a tiny courtyard, and in the winter, it has pansies and a few bits and bobs, but in the summer, it does grander things like this:

This little discovery today reminded me of a beautiful passage in The Secret Garden- my favourite book as a child.
