When Sunday and John Reed purchased Heide, now site of Heide Museum and Art Gallery, it was a neglected former dairy farm. At the end of their lives, it was unique among Melbourne's parklands, densely forested with exotic and native flora, with a stunningly beautiful cottage-style kitchen garden the jewel in its crown--in all, an extraordinary aesthetic accomplishment in itself, the result of fifty years of vision, dedication and sheer hard work. Sunday's Garden explores the growing of Heide, and in doing so fully restores the Heide garden into the literature surrounding this inspiring site, its creators and the makers of its myths.
