"This is an illusion we created to hide a very bleak new fence at the back of the garden. It is constructed of nothing more than old fence pailings, mirrors and paint... It's meant to look like an old outback cottage, with a pathway leading to the door and its own garden beds, complete with a fushia in an old metal pail and geraniums in the window box. The mirror backed windows reflect the garden adding to the illusion. This picture shows the recently added veranda and pergola which has frangrant, pink climbing roses ("Cecile Brunner") that hopefully will soon cover the structure. There is also now a side gate and a little pathway runs up under the Camillia trees to a secret corner where a cheerful Gnome resides and a large pot of Seaside Daisies cascades with white and yellow flowers. The next addition we are planning to construct is a Billabong opposite the folly with a tiny jetty and a quiet fishing spot for "The Folkoutback"."
