Highlights from some of the unique gardens that were part of this year's popular event


A wall of boots
The theme of reusing common items appears again: these repurposed old boots at Sandy and Des Kennedy's garden have been painted, lined up neatly along the wall of a garden shed and filled with flowers (real and artificial, depending on what's available). Old picture frames, painted to match the dusky aqua-grey colour of the wall, integrate this fun feature. An artistic eye and a sense of restraint keeps this look from veering into the realm of "cutesy." The shy little garden gnome is an unusually understated example of this species.
