The Hunter Val­ley cac­tus gar­den of painter Philip Drum­mond, who fo­cuses on Aus­tralian na­tive plants in his still-life pieces, is an art­work in its own right.

Tra­di­tional Ja­panese land­scape de­sign in­spired the gen­tle curves of this cac­tus gar­den’s wind­ing path. The dog sculp­ture was a gift from in­te­rior de­signer Ge­orge Freedman. FAC­ING PAGE Philip Drum­mond’s work ref­er­ences the golden era of Span­ish still-life paint­ings.
