An Enchanted Garden

So when last in the big city, we made a fantastic discovery.
It was an enchanted Garden full of sweet surprises...

Such as vultures perched high above our heads...


...ready to welcome in all who were willing to leave the heaviness of the adult world behind...


...a walking stick stopped to say 'how do ya do?'...


...A turtle shuffled out to ask us if we needed directions,
he instructed us to just follow our care-free hearts and let whimsy be our compass...


...It was a quiet place where shy snails wanted to talk about the weather...


....and where you were invited to tea with a tortoise and a berry picking bear...


...where long secret pathways amongst tall and towering grasses lead you to smiling snails...


...Where on top of a sweet little hill you spot a wooden gazebo and what looks like
a wonderfully secretive spot that your feather light heart craves to leads you next...


...but where on your way you meet one of the happiest of rabbits who invites you to spread your smile
and of course to frolic and play...


...and who requests a shy peck adieu before your off on your way...


...It was a place where that secret spot we glanced upon the smiling snail hilltop was finally found...
And what wonderful energy the place held...
you could feel magic sparkle and shimmer all around you...


...It was where I met a fellow book lover who read me a story so fantastic I dare not even try to repeat it
for it's something you have to hear on your own...


...I was very reluctant to leave, but the storyteller promised he'll be there ready with another grand story whenever I am able to visit again next...


...This was a magical garden which seemed to even enchant grown up boys...


...It was a most wonderful place for hearts that like to believe in magic...


...For souls who believe in the beauty of their dreams...


It was a place that reminded one that the most ordinary of days can suddenly
be turned into the most splendorous soul drenching moments.
That moments of pure unexpected blissful delight can tingle your soul,
if only you'll let your heart be light & open your eyes to enchanted magic...

Thanks for hopping in this week everyone...have a great weekend and see you all on Monday.

The garden is on the Toronto island. Head down to Queens Quay, between Bay and Younge St...
