Wednesday Words – Secrets

What secrets hide in the terraced garden that I painstakingly carved out of the hillside?
Herbs and flowers now overgrown with grass. I rip the green stalks up by their roots and discover…
Wet garlic, dying thyme, fragrant rosemary, pungent sage and perfumed lavender. Even the pulsatilla, though tiny, thrives.
Lower down marjoram and oregano spread, seeding their offspring in the terraces above.
