Dianne, who is, coincidentally an ex-student of mine, was named ABC Australian Gardener of the Year in 2013, an award she justly deserves. I'd like to be able to say I taught her gardening, but I was her Physical Education teacher - a subject which she admits she did not like.

Another lovely fountain with the house in the background.
My favourite part is the woodland garden.
This area is shaded by large mature trees under planted with shade loving perennials, ferns and shrubs. You just can't resist following the winding path.

"Just Joey" a favourite rose.

Dianne has plans to extend her garden with several projects in mind. We can only hope that there will be some way to continue the Open Gardens Scheme so we can revisit this delightful garden.
