There were no plans to begin with. We knew what sort of garden we wanted – a rambling full of adventure place like Edna Walling described but beyond that it was overwhelming. But – we did have the hard landscaping done and many many mature beautiful trees so anything else was just a bonus.
Most importantly the garden had to be an extension of the mudbrick houses where floor length windows everywhere meant the garden was always visible and to be enjoyed. We also included as many elements as Edna described – we even tried to make our own mushrooms like she did – ours were just a bit too rustic!
After 7 years I drew the sketch above – we were almost there.
Inspired by Edna Walling where the birds build their nests and take a bath. It is a place for all the seasons – just like coming home.
At all times watch out for the kangaroo!!!
