Elgin Open Gar­dens

Over­berg

South African Country Life - - October Diary -

Elgin Open Gar­dens are car­ry­ing on as usual de­spite the drought. En­joy 18 open gar­dens, in­clud­ing three new ones: Carmel, an in­ter­est­ing work-in-progress on a slop­ing site with a steep walk along a suc­ces­sion of ponds; Ridge­lands, an old gar­den now well re­stored from the 1920s with the largest tulip tree in the coun­try; and Lady Bourne’s old gar­den Luborne, not yet re­stored but still with many of its old trees and shrubs and some of the lay­out still in­tact.

Who can deny that Oc­to­ber is the mooiste,

mooiste maand, so let's em­brace the first rains

and cel­e­brate the great out­doors
