The Night Garden

Fairfield Rd & Hyde Rd, Yeronga QLD
This work is based upon my own experience the past year. I suffer from Cystic Fibrosis and became urgently ill last July. I ended up having an emergency transplant at the beginning of August. While I was in hospital I missed being outdoors immensely. Once home, I spent most of the early days in my mum’s garden, listening to the birds and the rustle of the trees. As part of my recovery I had to walk daily. I slowly built up my distance and would walk from Yeerongpilly, through Yeronga every evening. I am an avid admirer of gardens in the area and for my submission have imagined a landscape of vividly coloured plants and flowers, glowing as they light my way home. Being able to experience nature in this capacity, as I was never able to before, has been such a privilege.
