Petersham Open Gardens is one of the local events that I never miss and in 2016 it was even more unmissable with good weather and some new gardens to see plus some old favourites.
The first garden that I went to was one of the new ones, 2 Cedar Heights. The simple and flat front garden, which most of the houses in the road have, was no clue was to what was behind the house. The garden dropped down steeply away from the house and then climbed up again at the far end. In the middle was this pond fed by water falling down from the upper level.
