#1 Babylonstoren

Posted by

Dating back to 1692, Babylonstoren is a historic Cape Dutch farm that boasts one of the best preserved farmyards in the Cape. We walked around the magnificent gardens with fruit, vegetables, berries, bees for pollinating, indigenous plants, fragrant lawns, a prickly pear maze, ducks and chickens, and more.

It is really very surprising to see on your photo of trees without leaves while we are here at the beginning of the summer

@dobbino: Rob - same. When we lived in SA it was still a private home. Each time we returned we passed on the way to my favourite Boschendal. This last visit our friends took us there. It is truly fabulous, you need to make a day of it, lots to see and photograph.
