Bron is a textile artist, musician and avid gardener. She was a performing arts primary teacher all her working life and since retiring has travelled extensively with her husband Laurie to indulge her love of landscapes, wildflowers and birds. As a photographer she endeavors to capture the soul of the Australian landscape and then interpret it through her embroidered pieces. The informal cottage garden has been lovingly developed over four decades with terraces, steps and retaining walls built to allow access to every corner of the garden, and a half basketball court provides a safe play space for the grandchildren.

The beds are crammed full of colourful flowering shrubs, perennials, groundcovers and bulbs to ensure a continuous floral display. In early spring the front garden features a beautiful Magnolia soulangeana, camellias and azaleas which shelter a vibrant mass of iris, bluebells, anemones, ajuga and forget-me-nots in every shade of blue and purple.

Behind the house, roses, sweet peas, honeysuckle and wisteria flood the entertaining area with perfume. The eye is drawn to a delightful tea house at the bottom of the garden which can be reached by meandering paths through dense plantings of hellebores, fuchsias, ferns, bacopa and alstroemeria.

Everywhere there is evidence of Bron’s artistic talents with her bonsai collection, her pottery and glassware recycled into quirky garden ornaments.
