Marian has written a book, Picardy “An Australian garden inspired by a passion for all things French”, tracing the history of finding the land, building the house & barn, and establishing the garden. In it she explains her love of all things French and how it has influenced the design of the buildings and garden.
Picardy, located in a pretty Gippsland valley, is a romantic garden created by Marian and Bryce Somes. The garden was designed to complement a French style rammed earth home, mudbrick barn, dovecote and palais de poulet. Parterre beds in the front of the house are crammed with roses, perennials and annuals. Crab apple and dogwood walks lead to rambling gardens and old-fashioned roses. A herb garden, small vegetable garden, orchard, olive grove and vineyard complete the picture.
Copies of Marian's gorgeous book will be for sale.
