I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, I was obsessed with The Secret Garden. There was something about hanging out in a secret space full of flowers that nobody else knew about that appealed to me. Maybe it was because I was in the closet, or maybe it was because I had 3 siblings, but either way, I love a good hidden garden. These hidden gems are located all over LA, and definitely worth a gander or a stroll.
