|The entrance to Klein Champagne Estate, Franschhoek. Vineyards lined with magnificent roses.|
|I wandered about, totally in awe of all the work that would have gone into planning and designing such a large garden.|
To be accurate, it is several gardens within a garden and I found myself "oohing and aahing" at every turn.
|The only thing that saved me from becoming bright green from head to toe was the knowledge that I not only lack the huge budget necessary to maintain such an enomous undertaking...|
|I do not have access to what I am sure must be hoards of fulltime gardeners to assist with the upkeep and beautification of this marvel.|
|This realisation allowed me to relax fully and simply take it all in.|
Once again, we took far more pictures than is feasible for me to upload here. I ended up picking this selection blindly, so not all are necessarily the best choices, but due to time constraints, I am unable to examine each one closely before selecting or discarding. I do hope I have given an idea of the scale and beauty of Klein Champagne with those I have shown here. There is just so much to this garden that it is not possible to do it justice in a blog. I will never forget the experience of being there to see it all in person.
