Winter Solstice at The Drip, Mudgee

On the Winter Solstice, after the longest night of the year, the sun rises above the doorway of The Garden Room.

The first rays of light flood into the room, penetrating to the depths of the house.  And the days begin to lengthen once more. The life force returns.

The orientation of the house and the surrounding gardens was carefully designed after a full year of recording detailed observations of the movements of the sun across our valley.  .
