ELIZABETH Vorrath has a garden full of vibrant colour. But it’s her view of Port Phillip Bay that makes it special.
“Lot’s of people have got better gardens than me – but they haven’t got the view,” she told the Voice this month.
Her garden is one of five open to the public in Drysdale this Sunday, in support of Cottage by the Sea.
Elizabeth and husband John have put the garden on display for the last decade or so for the charity.
“It’s worth making the effort for Cottage by the Sea,” she said.
“They’re a great organisation.”
They built the property more than 30 years ago, so John could “be near the surf”.
“We’ve been here since 1972 – so we sort of feel like we belong here,” Elizabeth said.
Elizabeth is constantly changing her garden, which she likened to a painter’s canvas or an embroiderer’s tapestry.
“One can be quite creative using different colours and textures in the garden,” she said.
“I find it creative – as well as a hell of a lot of work.”
For more information on the gardens and opening times contact Sandy Cunningham on 0438 582 388.
