The Secret Garden
Inspired by the book "The Secret Garden."
About this creation

'Thick as the ivy hung, it nearly all was a loose and swinging curtain, though some had crept over the wood and iron of the door.'



'It was the sweetest,most mysterious-looking place anyone could imagine.'



'Mary had thought it must be different from other gardens which had not been left all by themselves so long; and indeed it was different from any other place she had ever seen in her life.'





'The robin who had flown to his treetop, was as still as all the rest of the garden.'



I don't think that the garden in the book had a fountain, but mine does. ;)



'"How still it is!" Mary whispered.'


'"No wonder it is still," she whispered again. "I'm the first person who has spoken in here for ten years."'

A shot of the whole garden.


I hope you enjoyed! Most of the commentary was taken directly from the book. Also Ru made the robin and some of the plant techniques were taken from Areetsa.


Please leave a comment! :)

Great vignette! I was wondering if anyone had done the Secret Garden. Creative fountain--simple but realistic. Maybe you can expand the whole scene? Can you comment on this: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/293738 Thanks! It is also a vignette built whose inspiration was from a book

Quoting Connor Simpson That book is a favorite of mine, and you've done an very good job of rendering one of the most magical places of literature ever. The minifig and the robin are great as well. I believe that this merits a rating of "excellent."
Thank you very much! I love that book too. I'm glad you like my MOC! :)

Quoting corey lopez Though I may never read the book ( most of the stuff I read contains classic horror, HPL ftw, action, and suspense) the small vignette looks very detailed and has some good building techniques. Using quotes from the book as commentary is a nice touch.
Thanks!
