Part 2 - Small village 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.
Part 1 of this series focuses on Large Farm gardens. Click HERE if you missed that dose of inspiration.
This Part 2 focuses on the small village gardens and is a real inspiration for those with smaller gardens. Enjoy!
Parts of the small and large gardens can be incorporated into almost any garden.
The following 4 photos are from a small garden where the owner has a grass allergy, hence the garden is just a mass of flowers and paved walkways .
