Everyone should cultivate a secret garden. A beautiful world with in ourselves; where flowers bloom and birds are free to fly. Branches and tree roots wrapped around the rib cage, protecting the lungs, spreading life. Butterfly’s fluttering between plants which can grow as wild and free as they please. There are no boundaries, no flower is worried that it’s not as beautiful as the one next to it. No creature fears hunters, no tree is chopped down because it’s not growing ‘right’. Everything is free, self-assured and independent.
That world is much like this perfect location we shot with. Nature has not been destroyed nor tainted by the hands of man. You can see it straight away; the buttercups and daffodils have not been oppressed by humans. The thistles and rosebuds are calm and growing with elation. They’ve only been cared for, felt the love that we can give and relished in it all.
There’s such a beautiful sense of peace here. I’ve yet to find a place that can match such a wondrous atmosphere, like this one. The picture really doesn’t do it justice but I hope that we’ve still managed to capture some of the garden’s magic.
I call this dress the ‘woodland fairy’ dress because that’s exactly how I feel when I’m wearing it. I know it’s impossible to be one and I certainly don’t look like a woodland fairy. However, I love the magic it causes me to feel and the enchantment it brings. It felt perfect to bring such a beautiful design to an even more charming place. Oh, and that secret garden inside of us I just spoke of? Well, it rises and evolves when I’m here, wearing this outfit, feeling like I’m in a fairy tale.
Her heart was a secret garden, and the walls were very high.
