The whole rainy week passed quickly for Mary. She passed hours and hours talking about gardens and rajahs with Colin. He showed her his coloured books.The girl though her cousin would be healthier if he met Dickon, the pretty robin and see the gardens.
Some days after, Mary woke up early. She met Dickon in the Secret Garden and they observed the things growing. Mary talked with Dickon about Colin, and they concluded it would be good for "the rajah" if he saw the gardens. Dickon asked Mary if she saw that the robin and his mate were building a nest.
