Behind A Garden Gate In South Africa

It was my first morning in Johannesburg, South Africa and I could hear the most glorious birdsong outside our room.  I leaped out of bed and dressed as quickly as I could because it was now daylight and I wanted to see the beautiful garden that I had caught glimpses of the night before.


The garden did not disappoint me.


This is the first thing I saw as I stepped from our beautiful room.


Oh what  beauty there was in every direction that I looked


I must confess that I had a bit of garden envy as I realized  how very many varieties they were able to grow year round


Things that we had to bring in for the winter months were growing everywhere.


I began taking pictures as quickly as I could.  I didn't want to miss a single thing.


The owner had told us that her garden was filled with native varieties.  It was also filled with beautiful garden art.


The textures and colors were beautiful


I especially enjoyed the little surprises that awaited us everywhere.


As well as the garden rooms that took you from one delightful place to another.  I think it would be very difficult to become bored with this garden.


It had delights that thrilled the senses even in the night time hours.  The shapes, the smells, the sounds, the textures, the colors, and even the creatures that visited the garden were all delightful.


I have to confess also that I couldn't wait till morning.  I snuck out of my room in the night and enjoyed that garden under the starlight.  A shy kitty joined me as I delighted in the beauty around me.


I know I was being a bit naughty but I just couldn't resist such beauty.


Having a garden so close to me without being in it is like putting cheese in front of a mouse.  It is just irresistible.  I don't regret my night time adventure one bit.  In fact I think I would do it all again.  If you would like to visit this garden too you can book a room  with Bit O' Bush Here


Until Next Time
