About the artwork:

The Almond Garden Ball


In 1827 John McLeod planted a large almond garden at his property, Meadowbank and parts of the garden are still there today. McLeod was a hospitable man which was illustrated when he held a extravagant ball at Meadowbank in 1840. Hundreds of red Chinese lanterns lit the road from Campbell Town to Meadowbank through the almond garden. The ball became later known as the Almond Garden Ball.
