An Estate Garden

a gorgeous late autumn sky over northern Johannesburg

Scenes from an amazing Urban Garden in the outskirts of Johannesburg
Landscaped and designed  by my friend Donovan of Nature and Beyond.
It's a blend of garden and wild grasses and predominanatly inidigenous - which
is the way to go in terms of water requirements and
the wonderful array of birds of the area.

What a lovely garden! I am imagining a roaring fire in that "staan vuur" as my hubby would call it!

We didn't get there this weekend, Gena, but your photos are gorgeous and hopefully I will visit the garden with Donovan in a few weeks! Jack
