'The Australian Country Woman's Garden' is the story of 200 years of gardening in Australia, seen through twenty-one glorious gardens which have been created, and are maintained today, by women. From Nindooinbah in Queensland and Markdale in New South Wales to Cruden Farm in Victoria, Woodsoak in South Australia and Dunedin in Tasmania, the diversity of Australian gardens and gardeners is celebrated in this book.
Through her very personal account, and through her beautiful images, Holly Kerry Forsyth has captured the essense of Australian gardening, and of the Australian spirit.
This exquisite tribute to Australian country women and their gardens recalls the often difficult history of gardening in this country, as the earliest owners struggled with the climate, and with their isolation, to create their particular vision.
The author takes us on a tour around each garden, and through more than 200 colour photographs, and with delicate watercolours of key garden areas, we too can enjoy their beauty.
