Cultivate Your Own “Secret Garden” as You Enjoy This Relaxing Adult Coloring Book

Secret Garden

Gardening is a great way to relax—as long as you have a green thumb. Fortunately, there's still hope for those of us who aren't gifted in horticulture. With the Secret Garden coloring book by Johanna Basford, anyone can reap the the calming rewards of cultivating a colorful garden.

Like other adult coloring books, Secret Garden offers grown-ups an age appropriate way to get creative. What sets this book apart from others, however, is that it doubles as an “inky treasure hunt.” Basford begins this hunt by presenting a list of enchanting creatures waiting to be found, from beetles and butterflies to songbirds and sharks.

Of course, even with this treasure-hunt twist, Secret Garden is a coloring book through and through. All 96 pages feature intricate patterns or pictures rendered in black and white, inviting you to color within their lines—or, of course, to think outside the botanical box. This garden is your own little secret, after all.

You can find Secret Garden and other coloring books in My Modern Met Store.
