The goldfish are getting more active, and appear to be healthy.
Plant and garden features thievery is still an ongoing problem at Finnies, never ends, and never will.
Please remember that Finnies Garden is entirely run and maintained by volunteers, with NO help from the Government at all, and the garbage cans are there for the patients only.
I have uploaded a large collection of images to Flickr of Finnies Garden, view them as a SET or as a SLIDESHOW.
Take care, chau chau

Originally known as; "Farm View", This 2 acre plot of land located in the higher lands of Riverview Hospital, was a early start at horticultural therapy at the hospital. It all started on April,18,1951, when a nurse; Arthur Brian "Art" Finnie, was had previously been asked by a Dr.Bruce Bryson to start a garden project. Art Finnie, took on this task with gusto, and the garden quickly became known as "Finnie's Garden".
Finnie's now has its own click-able MAP that links to pictures, with text about some of the history about the garden.
Check out the YouTube slide-shows, an easy way to get a feel for the garden.
