Mind Wide Open Contest-Here is my entry!!!


Mind Wide Open Contest

I love Gail's contest at Mind Wide Open because it puts your thinking cap on. What can I do with the image she provides and a word of inspiration.


So here goes. First I thought about the book The Secret Garden. Then I thought of two friends meeting when they were young in this secret garden and growing into true friendship. I don't know if that makes since to some of you, but to be a true friend you have to grow and have a few punches, but still be there for one another. So this is what I came up with. I hope you like it. Go to http://www.mind-wideopen.blogspot.com/ and you will see all the great artwork people have come up with.

Welcome To The Secret Garden

Two Friends From Long Ago Would Walk The Paths Of This Garden

And As The Years Go By, The Weeds May Come & Go But The True Garden Will Always Grow
