The Australian desert: for thousands of years the only changes here were made by the wind, the willy-willies and sometimes the rain. Then a hundred years ago people from Europe settled in the desert and planted seeds from the other side of the world.

The Story of Rosy Dock is the story of one of the settlers who followed them, and her garden in the wilderness, a garden that is beautiful - but with an unexpected flowering.
