Visiting Mawarra: An Edna Walling Garden

As you may have gathered in past posts, I am a keen gardener and for me, the mix of nature and gardens is just perfect. Last year I learnt about Edna Walling, who was a well known garden designer here in Australia during the 1920s-1940s but she was also a photographer and an author, writing for magazines and also writing books. I felt I’d found I kindred spirit and now have 3 books by or about Edna and have been happily finding out all I can. So, to have been invited to visit one of her most well-known gardens was an absolute joy and privilege and I wandered around the garden with my camera, in absolute heaven. Hope you enjoy these images and you can find more here.  Mawarra is in Sherbrooke, Victoria and you can choose to stay at the guest house and enjoy this beautiful garden.

While at this garden walk I met with Chris who provides wonderful art deco style outdoor furniture. If you’re wanting to decorate your garden you might also like to visit his site to explore.
