Morning everyone!  I was just about to write “Happy Monday”, but I had to remind myself that it’s actually Tuesday.  For those of you in SA, I hope you had a lovely long weekend.

I’ve posted about Babylonstoren before, but one of my favourite things about it is that every time we visit there’s something new and different to see.  Yesterday we took my mom for a delicious lunch at the Greenhouse restaurant, followed by a leisurely stroll through the gardens.  I’m not going to bore you with the details, other than to say that you really need to visit if you have the opportunity.  You can find all the details on the Babylonstoren website.

“Spanning eight acres, the Babylonstoren garden is formal in structure. Every one of over 300 varieties of plants in the garden is edible and it is grown as biologically as we can. Fruit and veg are harvested year round for use in our restaurant. The garden is divided into fifteen clusters spanning vegetable areas, berries, bees, indigenous plants, ducks and chickens and includes a prickly pear maze. Gravity feeds water into waterways from a stream into the garden as it was done for 300 years.”
