“There were other trees in the garden, and one of the things which made the place look strangest and loveliest was that climbing roses had run all over them and swung down long tendrils which made light swaying curtains, and here and there they had caught at each other or at a far-reaching branch and had crept from one tree to another and made lovely bridges of themselves.”

–Frances Hodgson Burnett. The Secret Garden. New York: Bantam Dell, 2007. Originally published 1911. Quote on page 75.
