South Africa || Babylonstoren Garden
We arrived late in the afternoon, and the instant we drove through the gates of Babylonstoren we knew we should have planned more time to really take in and enjoy this picturesque slice of the Drakenstein Valley. I love gardens, and especially ones that not only look beautiful but produce fruits and vegetables all year round, then put me out in the middle of eight acres of impeccably planned edible gardens with a glass of wine and I am in heaven.
We were quick to check into our cottage so we could get out into the garden to explore before the sun went down. The Manager of the property was so adorable, she suggested that we fill our wine glasses to enjoy our stroll. It was a perfect suggestion. Although we were visiting in the winter months there were plenty of citrus fruits and winter squash to admire. The only thing that would have made the experience absolutely perfect would have been if my dearly beloved Grandma was with us, no one loved a garden more than Ivy. These photos are for you Gran – enjoy.
