NINETY-year-old Peta Van de Wouw of Camperdown is celebrating her birthday by throwing open her 0.8-hectare (two-acre) garden to the public on Sunday.
Gardening is Mrs Van de Wouw’s passion and she has celebrated her Dutch heritage by creating a rambling garden over the past 12 years that includes a Dutch windmill and masses of tulips.
The open garden is a fund-raiser for the Merindah Lodge aged care home in Camperdown.
Gates will be open from 10am until 4pm and include refreshments. Entry is $5.
Shirley Russell from the Friends of Merindah Lodge said the garden was in its springtime glory with lots of plants in flower.
It is at 141 Camperdown-Lismore Road, on the northern outskirts of Camperdown.
