Another Garden



I called in to have a look at the Walled Garden – another of the undiscovered gems of Perth. This is in the grounds of the Murray Royal Hospital and is run by Perth and Kinross Voluntary Action [PKAVS] as a series of projects with former psychiatric patients. They have gardening and carpentry and paint recycling and painting .. and best of all is the cafe with big buns. They work with about 45 people in the various projects. I thought it was a beautiful place – quite unlike the rather ‘interim’ state of the Blogstead gardens at present … where I continued to dig today while Spice stared fixedly through the gap in the fence for fully an hour hoping to catch a glimpse of Poppy.
