I went on a little adventure today. Purely indulgent, and I enjoyed every minute of it! I had a nice long ramble through the Botanical Gardens in Fort Worth, and then I popped around the corner to have tea in the Secret Garden.
I very, very rarely do stuff by myself. I mean, yes, hiking I do all alone. But going out to eat? Not so much. But I was challenged by my boss to take some downtime this weekend, and everyone I talked to about it backed her up… she told me how to find the Secret Garden, and I was very happy with it. Planning to go back with friends and have High Tea someday.
The really fun thing about the Secret Garden? It’s tucked into the middle of a large antique mall. I had so much fun puttering through booths – and getting lost! – after I’d refreshed myself with tea and scone.
I tend to look at kitchen stuff, and books, but old chemistry ware will always catch my eye. And there were some treasures, indeed! None of the glass came home with me.
If you really must know… a book on Texas history, a book called Mr. Kipling’s Army, a cast iron potato ricer, and a flat grater (because we needed one, and that wasn’t an antique. Maybe vintage).
I enjoyed myself thoroughly. Must budget to do this again in a month or two. I also had a lovely chat with a lady who specializes in books, and her booth is full of history books. I’m to get in touch with her for my specific needs for research books and she’ll keep an eye out for me.

That all looks wonderful! Count me in for High Tea!
That would be a fun get together! I’ll let you get settled, first, so maybe spring?
Excellent tour. I would love to take a road trip. Thanks for sharing.
If you do, give me a shout when you get down this way. I don’t live too far from there.
