Four days to go until the Spectacular by Nature Garden Tour so the garden grooming is peaking. This will be my sixth year of hosting 50 people through my garden and sharing the spectacular view of the Barrier eastern seaboard from the deck.

Each year I like to have a new piece of garden art as a present to myself and the people who visit - just completed in chicken mesh is the statuesque 'Wind Whisperer" constructed over the last few months out the back of Hooked on Barrier in Claris by artist Charmayne Dobbs. Aptly named she whistles gently as the wind passes through the many layers of mesh from which she is formed.

She is truly magnificent and a great testament to the calibre of our local artists.
