Part 1 - Large farm gardens
Every second year in spring (around October) Underberg hosts the Open Gardens festival. I had the privilege of being in the area over this time to view these most magnificent gardens.
Underberg is little village located at the base of the Southern Drakensberg mountains in South Africa. It gets cold in winter with heavy frosts and very often snow. The summers are gorgeous and hot with regular afternoon thunder showers.
I hope the gardens will inspire you as much as they inspired me.
