What are behind those doors ?
Once a year, the third Thursday of May, about fifteen houses in Beacon Hill open their doors – the tiny one, the one that leads to a hidden garden. Peasants like me are really happy to discover a wonderful world of tiny gardens in the heart of the city. What a luxury!
I marked my calendar a few weeks ago, and asked Manu and a friend to join me for a few hours, up on the hill. We got there early, had a coffee at Tatte on Charles street, which was already bustling with people holding the guide: a leaflet with a map, to wander in the streets and find the houses.
Absolutely lovely, and exciting to wonder what was behind the door…
I was happy to be there early because around 10.30, the line started to become very long… and most of the gardens are small. You were not there? Well, here’s a glimpse of what we experienced.
