When Sunday and John Reed purchased Heide, now the site of Heide Museum of Modern Art, it was a neglected 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 accomplishment, 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.
