What Secret Garden?

 

Our neighbor recently sprouted wings and became a snow bird. Unfortunately, because of a previous shoulder injury, he had to have surgery. Although, he will be here for some of the growing season, before returning  to his southern nest, his rehab will prevent him from gardening so he offered us the uses of one of his gardens.

Because it is a small plot surround by a tall board fence I call it The Secret Garden.
