She just celebrated her 103rd birthday on Wednesday. Her attitude to life is quite amazing, but her love of her garden at Cruden Farm in Victoria is what I find most inspiring.

I found out about the garden at Cruden Farm when I was looking for ideas for trees to line our driveway. The iconic photograph of the lemon-scented gums (Eucalyptus citriodora) along the drive at Cruden Farm popped up. I was immediately intrigued. I was given the full colour photograph book Garden of a Lifetime for Christmas, and I was smitten. To see a paddock transform into this grand garden over 84 years is quite inspiring.

I would love to go and visit one day.
