Old Montreal - The Secret Garden

Copyright Photo: Secret Garden in Old Montreal by Montreal Photo Daily, on Flickr

Leaving the restaurant from yesterday's post, I decided to wander up a side street. I wasn't even two blocks up the path when I spotted something out of the corner of my eye. I turned to see what had caught my attention and this is what I glimpsed through the bars of a wrought-iron gate. It was quite the vision. What a pity that I couldn't get a better look at the courtyard. For the moment, this will have to do!

Oh that looks lovely! It really does seem like a secret garden. Love the way the entrance is shadowed but the garden beautifully lit up. I'd love to sit with a book and dream :-D

You captured this hidden courtyard and added a bit of mystery in the perspective. Great shot and perhaps you will gain entry one day.

That little sanctuary in a busy metropolis is just sooo inviting. It looks well tended and much loved.
Hoppe the hounds don't tear you limb from limb once you do get in there!

Very nice! And the good thing is that there are secret gardens everywhere. Just have to find them.

Is it a private courtyard? Where is it located? Would love to have a look if possible!
Thanks!
P.S
I was doing a project on special or "sacred" (not necessarily religious per se) spaces in Montreal and would love to know if you have a particular one that stands out to you!
