The Secret Garden

After our Mother's Tea at 'The Secret Garden', we were ready to take a look around.

Of course we had to investigate the gift shop located at the front of the mansion.

So many pretties!

Sweet little hats - I love the pink one.

Naturally there were lots of tea related items!

My sweet daughter J told me to pick something out for Mother's Day! I chose the blue coffee pot on the top shelf! It will match my dishes perfectly.

From there we made our way outside to view the gardens.

Little surprises were around every corner.

Don't you just love this plant stand?

An old sink was put to good use in the shade garden as a home for ivy.

Of course what garden would be complete without a home for feathered friends?

These darling heart shaped rocks were attached to the back stairs!

These plant combinations were so unique.

Soft pink geraniums in a weathered crate = love!

These beauties rest on the garden bench awaiting planting.

We had a lovely day, enjoying our Mother's Tea, and browsing the gift shop and gardens.

So glad you could join us!

You can experience 'The Secret Garden' tea house, gift shop and garden yourself if you are in the Tacoma/Seattle area.

It is located in Sumner, WA



  1. This looks like a fun place to explore. I really like those heart shaped rocks on the steps, The garden is beautiful. We'll have to stop by there next time we're in the area.

  2. What a beautiful place - reminds me of a tea room in Slidell, Louisiana. So Victorian! <3

  3. What an amazing place! I think I would be afraid to turn around in that room chock-full of treasures. I love their planted baskets outside. (And your weather was obviously warmer than ours!)

    You must show us your coffee pot in its new home. x

  4. What an extraordinary place to visit for Mother's Day! I love the blue tea/coffee pot! Perfect choice. The flowers and gardens are lovely too.

  5. I love the white bench with the flowers and the little hearts--unique little touches that make the garden special. Great choice on the blue teapot! Hope you enjoy it :)

  6. Thank you all for sharing my Tea with me! xx
