Botanical Society Open Gardens Saturday 14 May 2011 Durban

The Botanical Society arranges open gardens from time to time as one of their outings.  Yetserday was a gorgeuos day.  Visited 2 gardens - one new and one well established, within close proximity to one another in Morningside.  Enjoy the pictures. Rev Dr Jill Morley and her husband Gavin are the owners of garden number 1, a small new garden and no. 2 is the Elehpant House garden belonging to Elaine and Brain Agar, a listed house and quite clearly a place of historical signiicance.  We had scrumpious tea and Brian entertained us with historical tales - the house is listed - and built in 1849.  That beats ours by 40 years at least.
