When Antonia McCaskie was a young girl, growing up in The Hague, Holland during the war, she was inspired by the resilience of flowers blooming amidst bombed ruins.
Decades later, living in another world, Antonia has created the most delightful hillside garden on the outskirts of Brisbane.
The front section, leading to her timber cottage, is a colourful profusion of sub-tropical plants while at the rear, large forest trees she planted twenty five years ago shelter swathes of shade lovers. Many of the plants growing here are unusual – reflecting the talent and persistence of a plantswoman.
Like so many, Antonia’s journey has not always been easy but the profound sense of peace in her garden tends to inspire all who visit.
